Three 10-minute Plays About Living for Death and Dying for Life
Producer Deena MP Ronayne (Hardly Working Promotions, in collaboration with Aberdeen Community Theatre) will be streaming her first self-penned show, TRIPLE BYPASS, on demand as part of the Kansas City Fringe Festival. The three 10-minute plays – Seeking Dignity, Close To Black and Tango-ed Web – are being presented at 14 virtual venues, including the Adelaide and Melbourne Fringes, throughout 2021 and have already won three awards: Most Viewed Show (Elgin Virtual Winter Mini Fringe), and Spirit of Fringe and Producers’ Award (Front-Row Fringe).
Filmed live without an audience at Aberdeen Community Theatre, South Dakota, and streamed with open captions, each play presents a unique take on life and death:
Seeking Dignity: Everyone hopes for an easy, peaceful death – but does everyone deserve it?
Close To Black: Two singers meet outside a nightclub and discover that, although almost thirty years divides them, not much has changed in the way the world treats female pop stars.
Tango-ed Web: Down in the Australian jungle, a hapless suitor attempts to impress a glamorous widow with his seductive moves, but will his Rumble Rumps lead to a torrid tango or a dance of death?
Ronayne’s production company, Hardly Working Promotions, has been bringing award-winning shows (Shakespeare’s Ghostbusters, Shakespeare’s Terminator the Second) to Southeastern US Fringe Festivals since 2018; its Shakespeare’s Reservoir Dogs was recently given Best of the Best List and Critics Choice Best Drama awards, closing with a sell-out, at this year’s Orlando Fringe. Hardly Working Promotions is presenting Triple Bypass online this year with a view to producing it live in 2022.
