All Tom wanted to do was take a short-cut through the auditorium so he could sign out for a dental appointment. Halfway across the bare stage, though, he finds himself smack-dab in the middle of a strange platoon fighting The Eighth Great War of the Singleterry Alliance. In the optional Act II, the tables are turned so that one of the soldiers becomes the stranger, suddenly adrift on a regular high school stage. This absurd battlefield comedy keeps the characters and the audience alike wondering what, indeed, is reality.

Published Reviews

"Directing In a Strange Land was an absolute delight. Because of the stark, simple staging and bizarre premise, the challenge to director and actors to create a whole world on a bare stage was as daunting as it was fun. Every rehearsal was a new exploration and discovery as we built that world."

Steve Hodgman, Souhegan High School
