About One Act Festival / The Original
What does it mean to be a man? "Tradition" is the journey of James Edward Bane III as he seeks to answer this question. From enlisting in the Marines, to his time during the war in Iraq and his re-entry to civilian life, we follow James as he encounters his doubts, fears and family secrets. Will he follow in the footsteps of his father, his grandfather, or his friends? Can he become his own man, more than just the tradition that has propelled him?
A PERFECT WORLD
A couple retreats to a fictional world occupied by games of their own imagination. We see them at various ages and stages of their journey, and as the fantasy world becomes a routine, the two struggle to break free and accept the perfect world of their life.
A woman wakes up to a solitary existence offering her the promise of absolute freedom of choice. However, her chosen absolute freedom turns out to be more restrictive than her previous everyday life. Will she embrace minimalistic bliss? Or protest against a personal hell of repetition?
