Dress Rehearsal
by Morgan Wade

Alan Vogelman is a reclusive, 50ish director who had a smash hit 10 years ago with the site-specific play Les Habitants, but he hasnít done much of anything since. Brock Carrington is an out-of-work actor struggling to make it in New York. Penny Fisher, in her late 20s, works in L.A., doing commercials and bit parts. Both Brock and Penny had important roles in Alanís earlier play. When the three come together to work on a new, mysterious project, old tensions emerge. Alan claims that the rehearsals are ongoing and they are just two weeks from opening. Brock and Penny are doubtful and exasperated by Alanís complacency. Theyíve yet to read a script. The audience themselves may or may not be part of the play. When the conflict comes to a head we are left to wonder what is real and what is fiction and whether or not life is a dress rehearsal after all.
