Wed 5 Apr, Guildhall Arts Centre comedy
The Understudies is a story of a group of actors preparing for their opening night of a new show. Following the developments throughout the final week of their preparations, they are a long way behind schedule – and it’s only getting worse. Complications arise through arrogant actors, wise-cracking technicians and a ‘long-past-his-best’ director trying desperately to recapture past glories. Will the stars of the show make it through the final week, or will the understudies, so far overlooked, need to step up? The Understudies is a dark comedy brought to you by Conceptual Arts Theatre Company and showcases the darker side of the performing arts industry.
