Comedy Through the Ages: A Weekend of One-Acts

The student-run Six&Two Theater Company is proud to announce its completely virtual “Comedy Through the Ages” one act festival. The plays will premiere on the Huntington University YouTube page. Tickets are available for free (huntington.edu/OneAct).

“The Bear” is a farce about love, loss...and pistols. Popova has been mourning the loss of her husband for seven months when a creditor shows up and demands payment. Popova explains that the steward of her finances won't be back for a couple days, so the creditor agrees to stay until then. Hilarity ensues as the two of them bicker, exchange insults, and finally agree to a duel that doesn't end quite like anyone expected.

“What Women Want Most” is an audio drama about King Arthur who has a ticklish problem. One of his best knights, Sir Harold Pendragon, is guilty of the heinous crime of stealing a kiss from a noble maiden. The penalty is death! But Sir Harold may go free if he can correctly answer one question: "What is it that women want most?"

“Old Detectives Never Die” is a filmed tale of mystery, theft, and all-around confusion for an innocent Tupperware saleslady who just so happened to ring the doorbell of the aging Sherlock Holmes. Holmes might not be the man he used to be, but he still knows a thing or two about finding out the truth. Watch as the great detective himself works to solve yet another mystery while he’s still in his slippers.

The “Comedy Through the Ages” one act festival will begin this weekend starting with “Old Detectives Never Die” on Friday, May 1, at 7:30 p.m.
