Three-in-One

The one-act play is the tapas of theater; it's not always enough for a meal, but it certainly gives you the satisfaction of a little something. Soundstage Productions' performances of Robert Anderson's You Know I Can't Hear You When the Water's Running give you tapas grande, offering three unrelated short comedies for the price of one (excising "I'll Be Home for Christmas" from Anderson's original running order). In "The Shock of Recognition," a playwright auditions a young actor for a role that requires nudity, and the actor in question has surprisingly few qualms about the prospect. "The Footsteps of Doves" catches Harriet and George while shopping for matching twin beds, as long years of marriage succumb to the need for a good night's sleep. "I'm Herbert" is a befuddled memory play wherein senior citizens Herbert and wife Muriel try to remember their past loves, with great difficulty. You Know I Can't Hear You When the Water's Running is performed at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 7 p.m. Sunday (July 16 through 25) at ArtSpace at Crestwood Court (Watson and Sappington roads, Crestwood; 314-750-6206 or www.soundstageproductions.net). Tickets are $10.
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: July 16. Continues through July 25, 2010
