VANCOUVER – The Clark College Theatre Department presents Terrence McNally’s It’s Only a Play, directed by Mark Owsley. Performances on June 3, 4, 9, 10 & 11, 2022, 7:30 p.m. in the Decker Theater, Clark College Campus. General Admission is $10.  Ticket Link: https://www.clarkbookstore.com/site_theatre.asp

It’s the opening night of The Golden Egg, and the wealthy producer, Julia Budder, is throwing a lavish party in her lavish Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs in the bedroom, where a group of insiders has staked themselves out to await the reviews. 

The group includes the excitable playwright; the possibly unstable wunderkind director; the pill-popping leading lady, treading the boards after becoming infamous in Hollywood; the playwright’s best friend, for whom the play was written, but who passed up this production for a television series. 

Add to this a drama critic who’s planned the playwright in the past and a new-in-town aspiring singer, and you have the prime recipe for narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre — and for comedy. Don’t worry: this play is sure to be a hit they have all been hoping for.
