The final offering is “Stealing a Kiss,” a touching and funny piece written by Laurie Allen and directed by Linda Seay. In probably my favorite piece of the evening, two elderly citizens meet at a bus stop. Raindrops turn to rain, and the two end up sharing an umbrella. Larry Greeley is a delight as Harvey and Stephanie Hepburn is equally good as Sue. The audience loved this work that closed the evening.

Ridgefield Theater Barn
Watch on YouTube: An Evening of One Acts 2023
The Ridgefield Theater Barn is once again presenting their annual “An Evening of Acts.” This year, the always entertaining evening features seven original unpublished works.
Paulette Layton is the One Acts Committee Chair and busy production manager of this production. Mark Hankla served as the lighting designer with Addis Engel in charge of sound design. There are some well-chosen snips of music between the seven one act plays. Layton writes that, as usual, “a theme for the festival coalesced… the question of intentions, hidden agendas and perhaps even a bit of deceit and manipulation.”
