“Act Naturally” an HHDS production, written by and directed by Giles Scott.
Act Naturally is a comedy in two very different parts (or is it two comedies?) Act One is 'just' a committee meeting: albeit more chaotic than most.
The Fannington Historic Sites Preservation Society urgently needs to raise funds. The committee decide to write and stage a play. "It will be fun", they agree. And "how hard can it be?" they ask themselves. Act Two is their play: It is hilariously dreadful!
