Moon over Buffalo Soon to be Staged

Cayman Drama Society (CDS), a not-for-profit theatre group that endeavors to promote appreciation for dramatic performing arts in Cayman Islands is set to produce a hilarious comedy play entitled “Moon Over Buffalo”.

Moon Over Buffalo focuses on husband and wife George and Charlotte Hay, who are fading stars of the 1950s. The couple is past their prime and they find themselves doing big plays in small theatres moving around the United States. They get on the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, when they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of “The Scarlet Pimpernel”.

Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong. They have to deal with the visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and clear the confusion caused by Charlotte’s deaf and aging stage-manager mother, about which play they’re actually performing in.

“With all the things that’s going around these days, all the drama and serious happenings in the world, we at CDS just want to provide a night of complete escape through staging this play. We want people to sit back, relax and take a break from the day-to-day, sad realities of life. Here in Cayman, we are blessed with a lot of good amateur actors and so I am looking forward to putting this production altogether. ” relayed Peter Kosa, resident actor-director at Cayman Drama Society. Peter is set to direct the amusing play that will be staged towards the end of November and early December. He has directed a number of plays, the most recent of which was Dancing in Lughnasa.

When asked who should come and watch the play, Peter replied, “It’s a cliché to say that it’s a play for all ages but I believe a well-written comedy is accessible to everybody. Moon Over Buffalo would work best with people in their late teens and those people who were around in the 1950s”.

Ken Ludwig, an internationally acclaimed playwright wrote Moon Over Buffalo. He has had a number of hits in Broadway in London, and throughout the world. He has won the coveted Laurence Olivier Award, London’s highest theatre honour, in addition to two Tony Award nominations and two Helen Hayes Awards. His works have been performed in over 30 countries in at least 20 languages.
