Coming up in just under a month, Abby Theatre Fest is a four-day festival of short plays with the same heart, soul and mind theatre you expect, but with a fun twist! Join us all-week for a boundary-stretching, risk-taking theatrical experience featuring a mix of shorter plays presented by exciting actors, directors and designers that are sure to entertain and challenge.
To give you a little insight into the shows, we asked each director to answer a few questions about their shows and the process! Next up, it's the director of Harlequin Rhapsody, Chris Taylor!

Who do you think would love to see your show? Give us a description of your ideal audience member.
I would say anyone who isn't clinically dead should come see this play; though I'm sure the ghosts will love it too! I think this show is made for anyone who has a heart, anyone who likes to laugh, to feel, to hope, to dream, anyone who has ever felt loss and heartbreak and come out the other side for better or worse should come see this show.
Harlequin Rhapsody is such a heartfelt and enjoyable show and I think there is something for anyone! Especially those who have experienced the hard knocks of life, who has lost someone and has had to continue on with only the memories of them, and any one who has wondered about their place in the world and whether they really matter.
