Ego Actus presented what do you mean
in the East to Edinburgh Festival
at 59E59 Theaters in New York City
in July, 2014
Following that run,
Ego Actus presented what do you mean
in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe
We played 24 performances in the Festival.
The "Edinburgh 2014" performances of
what do you mean
a play written by Bruce A! Kraemer
and directed by Joan Kane
Everyone who has seen a play thinks they can write one, but can they? A wannabe playwright has had his play accepted by a play festival, but he has not written it yet! He types frantically as the real theatre people -- the producer, director, designer, actor and intern -- teach him how itís done. A hysterical look at how plays are created for festivals. This is a very physical comedy with iconic charters that anyone can relate too.
