It is just possible that Three Course Theatre may enter The Flawed Flautist into the Saltburn Drama Festival of One Act Plays, in March 2023.
It could be possible they also enter The Singular Act of Cyrano de Bergerac too...

About the plays 

The Singular Act of Cyrano de Bergerac

 

This is a concertinaed, prose version, of Edmond Rostand's original, with each scene matching the five acts of the full play.

The vast cast of the original is reduced to just ten characters, played by our three actors. The main characters of the play are: Christian (a handsome, but tongue-tied, soldier), Roxane (a beautiful woman of good standing) and Cyrano de Bergerac (Roxane's cousin - A fearless, political, and poetic soldier, but one not known for his good looks.)

Christian, seeking to court Roxane, desperately needs Cyrano's linguistic skills to promote his suit. Outpourings of love ensue, but the Siege of Arras cruelly intervenes. Cyrano is left to comfort and console Roxane in her retreat, while his own situation is far from safe.

The Flawed Flautist

Set in adjoining rehearsal rooms of the fictional Riverside Studios, a pianist and a flautist meet under trying circumstances. Whether the studio manager can produce harmony from discord remains to be seen (and heard).

As an unconventional twist, the author has come up with a choice of three endings; right up until the very last moment in the play, even the actors themselves will not know how the story ends each night.

We are grateful to Alistair Briche for permission to use both of his plays royalty free.
