LALT News:

Imagine a situation in which you had to team up with someone with whom you had only one thing in common. How would you do?

That’s a question director Iain May asks audiences to consider when watching “Night and Day,” being performed at the Los Alamos Little Theatre’s “8×10’s Fifth Symphony.”

The final two performances of this production 7:30 p.m. Nov. 20 and 21.

“Night and Day” was written by Alix Hudson and emerged from her participation in a 24-hour Taos play festival — in which plays have to be written, cast, rehearsed and performed in 24 hours.

“I was selected to write a play that involved a key, the theme ‘Night and Day,’ and three people: a woman in her 20s and two men aged 30s-40s,” Hudson said. “I was intrigued – and continue to be – how baffling and varied our laws of attraction can be.”

The play features Iain May, Rose Corrigan and Dan Shields, who is new to the LALT stage and to theatre in general.

The 8×10 format — eight 10-minute plays — offers plenty of opportunities for community members to get involved in theatre or for LALT members to try out new roles in a production. This production includes five first-time directors, six people new to the LALT stage, and others trying
out roles such as lighting tech and stage manager for the first time.

The evening of short plays also provides a variety of performances for audience enjoyment.

Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets, CB FOX or at the door.
