We now must leave Chekhov behind on the script shelf, and go to the next playwright: Christopher Durang!! Christopher Durang is a lunatic. At one climactic fantasy moment, the guy character emerges from backstage dressed as the Infant of Prague , and the female character suddenly transforms into Sally Jessy Raphael … and Raphael sets about to interview the Infant of Prague.

The Mercyhurst Theatre Program presents a student-directed festival of one-act plays Feb. Sorken , a curtain-raiser in which an over-articulate, somewhat dotty woman delivers a lecture on the theatre;. Naomi in the Living Room, a sketch in which the alternately friendly and insulting title character is visited by her son and daughter-in-law;. Brett D. Johnson, director of the Mercyhurst Theatre Program, says the one-act festival is a sort of capstone project for the student directors, junior and senior theatre minors who have been responsible for every step of the directing process.
