THREE BY GEORGE! a group of three related 10-minute plays written by George McGee will be informally read at the next meeting of 517 Playwrights on February 13, 2011 at Common Grounds Coffee House in Lexington from 2-5 pm. The meeting is open to the public.
The three plays are all set in the a large upscale hotel restaurant in a large city. Each play is summarized below:
AT IT AGAIN! - Margaret returns from the restroom to find Nelson sitting alone at the table. Nelson tells Margaret that her husband and his wife are dancing…somewhere. Margaret sits down in shock and tells Nelson that her husband is, “At it again”.
SHALL WE DANCE ? - Dan and his fiancé, Gillian are having dinner with Dan’s recently widowed father, Mike. Dan is called away leaving Gillian and Mike to…”Make nice”…it’s not going very well.
JUST DESSERTS - Two college students, (Patrick and Leslie) have been ordered by their respective Greek organizations to meet in a ‘fancy’ restaurant for a blind date…the only problem is each has to dress as the opposite sex…and they aren’t fooling anybody.
Mr. McGee is an actor and playwright who directs the theatre department at Georgetown College, Georgetown, KY. He is probably best known for his portrayal of Kentucky statesman Henry Clay for the Kentucky Humanities Council's Kentucky Chatauqua program.
