One-act weekend at Valley Center Stage

Valley Center Stage hosts a weekend of one-act plays Friday and Saturday, Jan. 17 and 18. Two one-act plays will be presented each night, a new work by local playwright Ed Corrigan, and a returning favorite, “Zelda.”

“Through the Memory Darkly” is Corrigan’s fourth play, the story of a dramatic, poetic and epic battle between Ego, who is trying to find her true self and Voice, who is the oppressive, pervasive force of social conformity. The play will be performed by Rene Schuchter and Denise Paulette, who also plays Zelda. Staging of this production is a collaboration between the playwright, actors and Wanda Boe as dramaturge.

Next, “Zelda”tells the story of the last days of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s muse, Zelda. Paulette brought this one-woman show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last year, to great reviews.
