The plays revolve around three very different themes, yet each plot has a twist or two designed to amuse, surprise or possibly frighten the audience. The plays are:
Your Life Is a Feature Film
Written by Alan Minieri and directed by Stan Katz.
Starring Ethan Felizzari, Chris Tully, Christine Jordan, Lauren Esposito, Larry Maltin
Set in an NYC apartment, the action begins with Luke (Mr. Felizzari) and his mother (Ms. Jordan) celebrating his twenty-first birthday. Then the drama begins: Has his life been reality or fiction? How much of his life has actually been determined in advance?
Written by Don Nigro and directed by Richie Applebaum.
With two alternating casts.
Meghan Tello, Tim Thieke on October 10, 12, 18 and 20
Georgia Berny, Derek Mclaughlin on October 11, 13, 17 and 19
Director Applebaum gave this preview: "He's stuck in a ditch, in his car, with a girl he never met. She was walking on a deserted road on a rainy night. He had swerved not to hit her. This is no romantic comedy."
Don't Forget to Write
Written and directed by Christopher Hackert.
Starring Judy McCormick, Scott McIntyre, and Michael McKenna.
Mr. Hackert tells the story of a widowed mother trying to make ends meet, and of her exasperation with her unemployed adult son. Her son is in for a big surprise when she decides she has had enough and lays down an ultimatum. Will he rise to the challenge or find himself facing the consequences?
The Bare Bones Theater Company was founded in 2000 by Jeff Bennett of Northport, as an acting school for adults. Eventually, Mr. Bennett drew on his alumni actors and others to stage innovative productions at an intimate space in the Posey Dance School building at 57 Main Street in Northport. Bare Bones currently produces five full-length productions each year and offers acting classes, showcases, previews of the works of Long Island film-makers, and staged readings of new, unpublished plays.
