Two one-act plays written by Gareth Owen.
The Confessions of Jon-Jak Crusoe Performed by Gareth Owen The hilarious struggles of a would-be genius to pen a world-shattering autobiography inspired by the Confessions of his muse, Jean Jacques Rousseau, ‘the frog scribbler’. Those struggles prove fruitless and a strange, threatening presence disquiets him even further, until Crusoe fears for his very life.
The Unkindest Cut Performed by Peter Hayter. The tribulations of an actor who, inspired by his hero, Marlon Brando, dreams of one day playing Marc Antony in Julius Caesar but is condemned to an endless series of walk-on parts. His frustrations eventually reach breaking point and compel him to extract public and bloody revenge.
