LOVE ACTUALLY ISN’T by Dan Johnson is a collection of six one-act plays about love, doubt, closure, and compromise. The anthology was produced by as a part of last year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival. Since then, a number of revisions have been made to the as-yet-unpublished script. Dramashop will present FOUR performances of this staged reading as part of Gannon University’s Fringe Festival. Directed by Zach Flock.
The performances are presented with free admission – donations welcome. A portion of the donations will benefit the Gannon University Theatre Dept. trip to Scotland for the International Fringe Festival 2014.
Anyone is welcome to audition, including actors performing in other GU Fringe Festival productions. Please bring a list of all conflicts, including other rehearsals. We anticipate starting rehearsals on or around March 1 through March 17.
