Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired Presents SMALL ACTORS
Directed by Robert Pierson, Small Actors is a one act play by Stephen Gregg. In the play, Emily desperately wants to play the lead in her high school's production of Romeo and Juliet. Instead, she gets a one-line, four-word role. Nonetheless, she tells her parents (who will be out of town during the performance) that she got the lead, and suddenly, things spin way out of control. This outlandishly funny and very touching play is about the roles we all play—in theatre and in life.
