The Soup Troupe and The Really Small Theatre Company are collaborating to present four short comedy plays:

ARABIAN NIGHTS by David Ives
Boy meets girl while travelling. Girl and boy fall in love. Straightforward, right? But what if you don't speak the same language? Or worse yet, what if there's an unexpected barrier to your communication, like a pushy third wheel, right as you're hunting for a last-minute souvenir on your way to the airport? Ridiculousness ensues.

Featuring: Anastasia Diatlova, Salomon Marttila, and Christian Jull.
Directed by Austin Sears.

TIME FLIES by David Ives
Horace and May meet in a bar and return to May’s pad to become better acquainted. Progress is hindered by interruptions from May’s rough neighbours and the arrival of a stranger who makes them question their purpose in life and how much of it they actually have left.

Featuring: Hosanna Megumi, Austin Sears, and Christian Jull.
Directed by Christian Jull.

MYSTERY AT TWICKHAM VICARAGE by David Ives
Three shots ring, and one body is found on a (very nice) carpet. Scotland Yard detective Harry Dexter is sent to solve who murdered Jeremy Thumpington-Fffienes. Was it Jeremy's wife, Mona Thumpington-Fffienes? Or their host, the Reverend Roger Penworthy-Pilks? Or perhaps Roger's wife, Sarah Penworthy-Pilks? Or maybe it was the sofa...

Featuring: Saga Arola, Riikka Faucher, Todd Elliott, Salomon Marttila, and Giuliano Didio.
Directed by Pauliina Munukka.

WANDA'S VISIT by Christopher Durang
Into the life of a very ordinary married couple, Jim and Marsha, enters Jim's very extraordinary ex-girlfriend, Wanda. Over the course of two days, the couple will learn a lot about themselves, each other, and especially about Wanda.

Featuring: Hosanna Megumi, Pauliina Munukka, Antti Vainio, and Austin Sears.
Directed by Anastasia Diatlova.
