After We Went to Our First REAL Play

FARCE/SPOOF. Adapted from the play “Alice Sit-by-the-Fire” by J.M. Barry. Amy, a dramatic, naïve teenager, has learned the ways of the world by regularly going to the theater, where she has learned about love triangles, covert love letters, and the importance of flinging your cloak back with a flourish when entering a room. When her parents arrive in London after a long military stint, Amy meets her parents and realizes they are largely strangers to her. After having seen five theatrical melodramas that week, Amy’s flair for the dramatic goes into overdrive when she mistakenly suspects that her mother, Alice, and Mr. Rollo, a lonely bachelor, have set up a secret rendezvous. To save her mother from scandal and shame, Amy concocts a farcical plot to “save” her. The laughs are nonstop in this side-splitting spoof of 19th century English melodramas.
