Pear Slices 2017
|Briana Mitchell, Ariel Aronica, and Bryan Moriarty|
From its writers’ forum often come full-length plays that premiere on the intimate Pear Theatre stage, and also emerging is an annual offering not unlike this year’s version of Pear Slices 2017: Eight fifteen-minute plays performed in repertory by seven talented actors. What becomes evident shortly within the first act of the two-hour, fifteen-minute evening is that a lot can be accomplished on stage in only a quarter hour. Stories are told; characters are developed; surprises happen while mysteries are solved; laughter ensues and tears suddenly well.
