|My Most Embarrassing Stage Experience Ever|
|Confession: I am not an actor. I suffer from horrible stage fright, or as I learned from Google, I have Glossophobia. Don’t get me wrong, I love theatre and I dabbled in everything before deciding that directing was my passion. In order to become a better director, I thought it would be a good idea to get some acting experience. That’s when I decided to participate in my university's cattle call auditions that tormented all the performers in the department every year.|
I had two great monologues from classic plays: God’s Country and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I memorized and memorized and memorized. I felt ready―nervous,... read more

The ridiculously talented Joseph Sorrentino brings you four ten minute plays featuring the famously funny duo, Frank and Harry. Clifford A.

A group of plays based on short stories by Hector Hugh Munro (18 December 1870 – 13 November 1916), better known by the pen name Saki, who was a British writer that pulled no punches in satirizing society and culture. Saki is considered a master of the short story and is often compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker. His tales feature delicately drawn characters and finely judged narratives. As short plays, you are sure to find them as witty and enlightening today as they were then.
