The ridiculously satisfying, if legally tacky, truth behind movie making.
The Table Scene takes place on the set of the next big budget sci-fi blockbuster. The cast and crew are having trouble coming up with the climactic scene to their film. How bloody can the death be? How revealing the costumes? And who should play which role? As characters clash over egos, creative vision, and really inappropriate sexual affairs, The Table Scene weaves a comic, surreal world where storytelling is a potentially lethal occupation.
One day, over drinks, MacAdam showed his friend Nick a new play he had been working on. Nick said, "This is ridiculous. Why did you make me read this?" So MacAdam went home and wrote a new draft, and this time after Nick read The Table Scene, he said, "Hey, it would be fun to put this up." They went and gathered a bunch of silly people to be in the cast (Jordan Coughtry, Bridget Coyne Gabbe, Deanna Henson, DeVon Jackson, and Antony Raymond), and a design crew that was incredibly overqualified for their project.
Rehearsals have been promising and the show is beginning to look like an actual play and less like five people jumping around while speaking in silly voices. Now comes the part where we have to ask for help in offsetting the cost of our little project. "It's a labor of love," as Ward likes to say, which means we need all the help we can get in putting it up.
Donations go towards renting our performance and rehearsal spaces. Also towards purchasing set pieces, building props, renting sound equipment, and putting together zany sci-fi costumes.
