The director, Tim Lamkin describes this play as a Farce and says its, quote, "PG-13" nothing too racy . He describes this production as a play, within a play.

The plot is that of a struggling troupe of actors rehearsing and performing at an opening night with the show 'Nothing On' and having difficulties along the way.

Lamkin says the themes of the play include the exploration of human nature, such as "jealousy, spite, miscommunication, misrepresentation and jealousness. "

Lamkin has also adapted the original script to include more "Alaskaness." He mentioned the most challenging part of the play was the staging of it, which sets apart this play from others.

"The whole thing revolves. We start off in Act 1 and Act 3 seeing the show 'Nothing On." It being rehearsed, it being shown, and then half way through we revolve the whole thing and see it from backstage which is something the audience normally doesn't see. " Said Lamkin

The show will run from September 20th to October 6th on Fridays, Saturday's and Sundays at the Hap Ryder Riverfront Theatre.
