The Wild, Off-Handed, Mating Call

The Dawes Project

Beschrijving uitgever

Three star-crossed lovers exchange their thoughts and feelings in a beachfront hotel room while being serenaded by the slurred, yakking whistles of a Plover bird who is also seeking Love and Romance.



Mr. Dawes’ play is presented as “un spectacle dans un fauteuil” (a show in an armchair), an early 19th century invention of the French dramatist Alfred de Musset (1810-1857).



Monsieur de Musset created this form as a theater experience to be read, thus avoiding the constraints of staging a production in an actual playhouse.



Here, in the 21st century, using the tools of our age, the reading of the play is performed by the actors so the viewer may comfortably rest in their favorite fauteuil.
