    Synopsis:

    Last Gas by John Cariani

    Nat Paradis is a Red Sox-loving part-time dad who manages Paradis Last Convenient Store, the last convenient place to get gas--or anything-- before the Canadian border and on the edge of what's wild and what's not. If you remember our production of "Almost, Maine" in February of 2011, you'll remember how delightful Cariani's characters and situations are.

    Last Gas also takes place in way-northern Maine, in a very small, unincorporated town, T16-R8, where unusual things happen to ordinary people. Long-time member Wayland Bunnell (from way-northern Colebrook, New Hampshire) directs a cast of six, four of which are brand new to The Players: Suzanne Watts, Heather Carmichael, Eric Stanley and Patrick McGranaghan. Children's Theater veteran Ryan Flaherty plays the teenage son, and Jerry Smith (The Full Monty, The Drowsy Chaperone, and others) round out the cast. Both staff and actors are wonderful, devoted, and working hard to bring this amazing play to you. So come take another trip back to way-northern Maine and see how funny, touching, moving and universal the human condition is. There's more than moose that can cross and impact our paths!

    White Rabbit Red Rabbit - the Actors part 2

    White Rabbit Red Rabbit - the Actors part 2

    In 2021 the Community Players of Concord staged nine performances, using nine different actors, of the play "White Rabbit Red Rabbit".

    No actor can have seen a previous production or have ever been in a previous production and once they've performed they can never perform it a second time.

    With no rehearsals, no directions and having never seeing the set before they walked onto it on their performance night, each performer was tasked with opening their script on stage for the first time and perform the piece.

    Today I talk with performer #8, Chris Avery. We discuss why he was chosen, the difficulty of the piece, what it did for him personally, etc.

Great local insight

I’ve been driving a lot more, doing an essential job during the pandemic, and it’s been GREAT to have this podcast to binge. Some episodes are with people I know well
and consider friends, and some are with people I’ve never heard of before - but they’re all interesting and insightful. Ray does a good job of making them all sound comfortable and conversational. My only complaint: I’m all caught up! We need more 😄
