Actor - by Frederick Stroppel


Actor by Frederick Stroppel

Comedy / 3m, 2f / Bare stage with set pieces This comic odyssey charts the life and times of the title character as he makes his way through the show business jungle seeking fame and artistic fulfillment. As a baby he learns that crying brings nourishment and affection; crying too long and loud results in scolds and smacks. Armed with this lesson about the capricious nature of existence, he launches into his craft as a child playing a Wise Man at Christmas. Then it's on to the acting Mecca of New York and acting lessons, a job in children's theatre and the crushing rejection of auditions. He heads to Hollywood and finds success on television and stardom in movies, but his time at the top is fleeting. Throughout, the Actor encounters a bevy of curious characters who influence his journey through this unnatural world.
