THESPIANS covers a year in the life of the Pinecrest Playmakers, a community theatre troupe.  In act one, a coup is underway at The Odd Couple’s opening night party.  Wally is seeking to have neophyte Eddie kicked out of the show.   Act two starts with Digger in jail for attacking the local drama for his vitriolic review of Digger’s Hamlet. With only 25 minutes until curtain, what deals will have to be struck to get Digger out of the slammer and into his codpiece?  In the final scene, the women’s dressing room on opening night of A Streetcar Named Desire is ablaze with conflict as egos rise and fall, new rivalries simmer, old ones burn out, until all must unite in the face of one last crisis.
