Playwright Jane Bodie’s A Single Act follows two couples – Scott and Michelle and Neil and Clea – after a devastating terrorist attack in the city where they live.
At the beginning of the play, Neil and Clea return home separately, overjoyed to find each other alive. The narrative then jumps a year forward and we see the final stages of Scott and Michelle’s relationship, one that began on the day of the attack.
Bodie dissects the two relationships, one running forward in time to its end the other backwards to its beginning, and examines how a single political event can change people’s trajectories irrevocably.
Travis McMahon directs. Rachel Slee, Georgia Nicholas, Dominic Di Paolo and Evan Piefke feature.
