SEIZE THE CROWN – A COMEDY ABOUT COMMUNITY THEATRE

Had the local Theatre Group spent as much time rehearsing (in this comedy about community theatre) as they did:

    • Arguing about their last performance
    • What their next play should be
    • If their director, Joyce, is living in luxury
    • Discussing Ted (the resident clown) and why he’s even in the Group
    • Taking way too may breaks
    • Fawning over their newest member (Rita’s) experience and training
    • Discussing Rita’s dad who’s in jail
    • Contemplating bowel movements
    • Mocking the name of the new play they’d be performing
    • Quarrelling over the stage directions involving a love scene
    • Gossiping over Tim’s operation on his, uh, member
    • Arguing over who won’t be playing the gay character and
    • Considering a change in leadership

    ……they would have had the time to really pay attention to Game of Thrones and they would have seen Rita coming (figuratively). And for that matter, they would have seen her brother Colin, coming too (literally). Tourettes or not Colin had a point to make and in a game like this, he had to make it.
