A funny and poignant new comedy, dramatising the events backstage as a colourful, complicated actress makes her farewell performance, while dealing with unexpected visitors.. Drama and comedy collide as people say their goodbyes, declare their love, roar with laughter, spit insults, grab a final embrace, and renew old battles.
The play is available in 2 versions -
the full version for a cast of 6 or 7
and a more economical version for a cast of only 2
"The Actress" has enjoyed successful productions

"A huge success...
the applause did not want to end...
The play is full of witty dialogue

A smart, intelligent and very amusing play."
