Two short plays: Anastasia and the Time Machine
Sunday, December 2 at 2 pm
the first play is a comic romp and mash-up of history and science fiction. Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia switches places with a look-a-like servant at the Winter Palace for a day. She winds up on a Time Machine meeting up with one tragic circumstance after another. Can she change the past and future, will she escape her own fate?
The second play shows us what happens when mysterious visitors come to the saddest little village in all of Ireland two weeks before Christmas. Both plays are directed and written by Colleen Curran and performed by the Liquid Courage Players. In English. Suitable for ages 10 and up, especially history buffs.
