SACKVILLE, N.B. – With the success of their March production of Shakespeare’s Will behind them, The Performers’ Company is beginning to prepare for their next play, which will again be presented as part of Sackville’s Festival by the Marsh. Written by American playwright and theatre director Rob Urbinati, West Moon Street is the title of the play, which is based on one of Oscar Wilde’s lesser known short stories “Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime”. First appearing in print in 1887, it was originally part of a series of short stories that included Wilde’s better known story “The Canterville Ghost”. Taking the lesser -known story, however, Urbinati has created a clever comedy of manners and mystery, described by the New York Times as a “complete delight”.

The play concerns the fortunes, or perhaps misfortunes, of one Lord Arthur Savile and a dubious future predicted by a palm reader. Determined to fulfill his destiny before he marries his betrothed, he plunges into a series of incidents that other upstanding young man of the time would normally shun! The resulting mishaps along with a cast of memorable characters form the basis of a delightfully witty play.

Auditions for the play will take place on Saturday, May 3, and a variety of roles are available from the young ingénue to the world-wary cynic and of course the elderly countess. Four male and four female roles are up for grabs. Scripts can be obtained prior to the audition by phoning 536-1264 or emailing: The play will be presented at The Maritime Conference Centre from July 23-27.
