Darien Library is proud to present for the fourth time Weekend One-Acts, a theatrical weekend featuring free performances of one-act plays from three esteemed playwrights. The program of three works includes one-act comedies from 1988 (David Ives), from 2013 (Mira Gibson) and from 1995 (Elaine May).

"Sure Thing" by David Ives

Directed by Autumn Howard

This one act comedy features a chance meeting of two characters, Betty and Bill.

"Old Flame" by Mira Gibson and "Hotline" by Elaine May

Directed by Donna McLaughlin Wyant with Kathleen Sauer

"Old Flame": When a woman runs into her ex-boyfriend in a grocery store, life collides with what really matters.

"Hotline": A neurotic woman with enough urban angst to fill a neighborhood calls a suicide crisis hotline late one night. The counselor who gets the call is overwhelmed - it is his first night on the job.

Doors open 1/2 hour prior to performance time. Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis. We cannot accommodate reservations. Latecomers cannot be admitted.

This program is free and open to the public.

Additional parking for evening and weekend Library programs available on Thorndal Circle (behind Nielsen's).
