Winter One Acts

One Acts is something Shorewood drama does every winter that allows students to create their own one act long plays and show them back to back in a single performance in the black box. This year, we have six plays being shown in succession at each performance:

Witches - A young witch introduces her new boyfriend to her family, but he doesn't know that they are all witches! 

The Greatest Bedtime Story - A father tells his son the greatest bedtime story of all time, but his son keeps meddling with the story!

Freud, The Date - Sigmund Freud attempts to go on a dinner date with a girl, but the entire time is fighting his Id and Superego, battling between the Superego's bossiness and the Id's animalistic behavior.

The Flat - A landlord who's just bought his first apartment is looking to lease it to a tenant, but the possible tenants have different quirks about them that makes the landlord hesitant to lease it to them.

The Museum Visit - A reporter visits a museum to get a news story about a new exhibit, but is accompanied by a thief who is there to steal something from the museum and is undercover. Between someone trying to steal something and someone just wanting a good story, shenanigans are sure to be abound! 

Anniversary Day - A man who frequently forgets his anniversary with his wife is assisted by his friends last minute to try and give his wife a nice anniversary, but things don't really go as planned.
