One Man Show – July 2019
Written and performed by Glenn Wallis
Directed by Amanda Crewes
“I Can Have A Dark Side Too” looks into a culture of mollycoddling, and our incessant need to “take it easy”, instead of pushing ourselves beyond our comfort zone.
Ray Fairchild, a budding songwriter has received the opportunity of a lifetime – writing music for his Community Theatre’s newest production. But there was something Ray did not expect… that he would have to write rap music.
Tasked with writing lyrics worthy of a gangster, Ray grapples with his fear of profanity. With the deadline closing in, he is lead into a dark space of writer’s block, procrastination and self-doubt. But what this causes Ray to drench up from his past will change all that he has come to know about what he is capable of.
Funny, relatable and cataclysmic, the play questions whether we are our own worst enemies to our success.
