Solana Beach’s North Coast Rep premieres one-act plays for Del Mar Foundation First Thursdays subscribers

The Cultural Arts Committee of the Del Mar Foundation presented staged readings of two one-act plays recently.

The Cultural Arts Committee of the Del Mar Foundation presented staged readings of two one-act plays for its recent First Thursdays presentation at the Del Mar Powerhouse.

Actors from North Coast Repertory Theater brought to life George Bernard Shaw’s “Overruled,” a play satirizing the matrimonial morals of the turn-of-the-century English upper class. The second play, “The Swan Song,” by Anton Chekhov, deals with the vagaries of aging, with the lesson that age is not a number but an attitude.

After the performances, the actors and directors treated the audience to a “talk-back” segment of questions and answers, giving the audience a backstage perspective on the plays.

North Coast Repertory is a nonprofit offering award-winning performances year-round to more than 40,000 people in an intimate setting. It also involves thousands of young people each year in the Theatre School at North Coast Rep’s education and outreach programs.

The Cultural Arts Committee of the Del Mar Foundation is dedicated to bringing a wide variety of concerts, lectures, and other performances to the community of Del Mar. Its flagship program, the First Thursdays subscription series, offers world-class performances every first Thursday between September and June.
