Mounting Sex in the Afternoon
Comedy one act version and two act version available
In this hilarious comedy a theatre is mounting a new production of “Sex in the Afternoon”. The playwright changes the genre of the play four times before opening night. The play starts out as a British farce, then a Canadian comedy, then a musical Canadian comedy then finishes a sci-fi musical. The actor in the play is caught between his wife who is playing his mistress and vice versa.
This is how mistakes get made.
Canada’s answer to Noises off – Margret Bard.
“Somewhere in the second act, I lost it completely I laughed uncontrollably. I rolled in the isles. I clapped a lot.”
“A million laughs in frantic romp.”
“Mounting Sex in the Afternoon Zone is a gem of a show that sparkles on all counts delivering a comic punch that is sadly to rarely seen…a noble triumph…a sheer delight from start to finish.”
“Mounting Sex in the Afternoon Zone is a broad, sprawling spoof of sex comedies, off stage affairs, Canadian content cheesy sets and miscued effects.”
