A play about a self-involved actress, known for her portrayals of tragic heroines, disguises herself as a man in order to play Orlando opposite her girlfriend.
SHE STOOPS TO COMEDY
By David Greenspan
Directed by Gregory S. Moss
In She Stoops to Comedy, Alexandra Page, a self-involved actress, known for her portrayals of tragic heroines, disguises herself as a man in order to play Orlando opposite her girlfriend, Alison Rose, who has been cast as Rosalind in an out of-town production of As You Like It. Because the role of Alexandra is played by a man, her transformation does not require the use of drag. And because the other actors in the As You Like It cast are friends of Alexandra and Alison –and the “disguise” is so effective –Alexandra has an opportunity to not only hear what people really think of her, but to be made privy to the inner lives of her friends and colleagues. The play examines the friendships and love relationships of its seven characters and plays with the nature of authenticity –both on and off the stage.
