Take George, one confused accountant. Put him backstage with no idea of how he got there, called upon tonight to replace another actor in a Noel Coward play. Or was it Shakespeare? Absurd comedy ensues as George struggles pitifully in the spotlight. In true nightmarish fashion, matters only go downhill for him as the play in question changes unpredictably, encompassing pastiches of Private Lives, Hamlet, Waiting for Godot and A Man For All Seasons. George’s distress escalates and his attempts to follow a mess of cues, whispered lines and angry reactions from the real actors is both funny and tragic. Is George dreaming, or is something even more surreal afoot?
