Topic: Seeking Directors for December

Topic type:

We're enlisting directors for our December 2008 show. Read more for details.

We are seeking directors for the next season of the Six O'clock Swill to be held at the Mighty Mighty on 10, 11 & 13 December.

The following plays are under consideration:

INVITATION TO A FUNERAL by Julie McKee (New Zealand)

GENRE Comedy
LENGTH Short, 12-15 minutes
CAST 2 females
SET One room with a few chairs and a coffin.
NOTES Adult language

Prior to expiring, a deadbeat ex-hippie sent a memo to his former wives inviting them to his funeral, and two of the women on the rather long list happen to meet at the open-coffin viewing. Neither has many good memories of their former husband, and his current state of near-nudity (save a strategically placed cowboy hat) doesn't exactly help matters. But bad memories or not, it's time for both to find a way to make peace and move on.

"A wonderfully wry trip to the funeral parlor... Ms. McKee knows that there are better ways to delineate characters than by giving them windy, emotive speeches."
--Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times

LOVE by Stephen Belber (United States)

GENRE Comedy
LENGTH Short, 10-20 minutes
CAST 3 males
SET The basement of a restaurant
NOTES Adult language and content

Three restaurant guys seek love amidst the clutter of food cans, life, manhood and rope.

Please send expressions of interest including resume to or ring 021 124 1794.  Directors' fee is minimal and can be discussed with applicants.
