Commencing & Subway – 2 one-act plays by Jane Shepard

Tickets for Commencing and Subway will go on sale online in early September.

Jane Shepard has crafted two wonderfully entertaining one-act plays that explore with humour and empathy the need to share the human experience with another. Expect laugh-out-lout moments interspersed with heart warming insights and edge of your seat suspense. In Commencing, a misunderstanding leads to a highly comical situation in which two women find their notions of gender identity challenged by an intense personal connection. A similar theme, with more serous undertones, is explored in Subway, as a chance encounter between two women pushes them to weigh expectations against vulnerability.

“I’ve seen two great one-acts in my life, [Edward Albee’s] Zoo Story and this one [Commencing].” –
“Edgy, original, and with a darkly comic humanity… Jane writes incredibly rich and truthful female characters not often seen on stage.”

Directed by Wendy Gail
