TAP/LTA Night of One Acts

Our night of one acts features three previously un-produced works that have won the Little Theatre of Alexandria (LTA) One Act Competition this year:

Across a Crowded Room, written by F. J. Hartland and directed by Alexa Roggenkamp: To meet a stranger or NOT to meet a stranger - it could change your life! Follow the story of two individuals meeting for the first time at a party at a suburban home as they peer into their future “together”.

Guinea Pig Apocalypse, written by Tony Pasqualini and directed by Juli Tarabek Blacker: A bizarre accident with their son’s class guinea pig leads two self-involved parents into the midst of an apocalyptic disaster.

Wild Horses, written by Brandy Victoria Durham and directed by Farrell Tapscott: Three campers struggle to survive the elements, and each other, at the height of the Black Lives Matter Movement.

About the Show

In collaboration with LTA, TAP will be putting up a “Night of One Acts” featuring the three winning scripts of the 2021 LTA One Act Competition, which received more than 100 entries worldwide this year! Join us in standing up shows that have never been produced before and get immersed in these new works by phenomenal playwrights. *Content Considerations* We want to honor this experience while respecting individual needs. We believe it is our duty to inform audiences of material that may be triggering. If you are interested in seeing the trigger warnings for this production, see this list: Strong language, mention of cancer and child mortality, mention of animal death, prop gun use, and drug use.
