Director’s Notes

Like most who will attend this production, I had never heard of “One For The Pot” before I was asked to direct it.  As a director and audience member myself, I love approaching new material with fresh eyes not knowing anything about it beforehand. What this production team and I discovered together harkens back to a time in British theatre that we rarely see produced in Utah. The cast and I have loved being theatrical archeologists dusting off the unique challenges of this madcap script, discovering the pacing and plot-driven madness, in order to revive this forgotten gem of a play.  Written over 60 years ago, “One For The Pot'' makes no excuses for its unabashed absurdity. It doesn’t pretend to be art, but rather, revels in being entertainment. Ideally, that’s what you’ve come to this theatre to do just that: to be entertained!  Hopefully, the complexities of this insane plot will make your own life feel far less complicated for a few hours!
