Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival

British playwright Ross Howard is an Edward F. Albee Foundation Fellow.

In Tilly (An Introduction), a young woman films herself auditioning to become a surrogate mother. Colour-coded jelly beans prove the saving of one man’s career in Rules of Assortment, and a football manager introduces his latest acquisition to an assembled press in Our Prospects For The Coming Season.

A son is reunited with his biological mother in Relinquish, while in The Viewing an estate agent shows a couple around their dream home to a soundscape of gunfire and screaming. Finally, in Frisky & The Panda Man, a conservationist struggles to rationalise his feelings for the last female panda on earth.

Dark, irreverent and very funny, Our Walk Through The World was first performed at the Old Red Lion Theatre, London in October 2013. With flexible casting and staging requirements, the plays may be performed individually or together.

 

"An entertaining and fast-paced night of quirky comedy sprinkled with poignant emotional observations . . . a playwright who clearly has a unique and promising ability to combine humour and drama. The push and pull created by Howard's habit of addressing everyday human issues and emotions within peculiar and uncanny situations makes for a night of pleasing theatre." One Stop Arts

"The six short plays were excellent throughout, all added up all in all to a very funny often challenging and not always easy to watch night at the theatre . . . a roller coaster of emotions. Big hearty laughs throughout then touching tender moments slapped us in the chops . . . an epic evening indeed." Remotegoat

"‘The World of Ross Howard may not be that of yours and mine – it is anarchic, irreverent and often very funny. A challenge waiting to be picked up." Prompt Magazine

 

Frisky & The Panda Man was a winning finalist in the Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival 2013
