Quibbles, Twaddle and Flummery
On October 21st, GreenMan Theatre Troupe will present “Quibbles, Twaddle and Flummery,” an online evening of five 10-minute plays by Craig Gustafson. Gustafson, a frequent GreenMan director, is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America. Several of his plays are published in anthologies: “Lending a Hand” currently; “A Cheap Maid in Chasteside” and “Save Me, Myron Glick!” later this year. The combination for GreenMan will contain selections ranging from heartfelt to farcical to completely bizarre.
“Quibbles, Twaddle and Flummery” will be presented at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, October 21st as a Zoom meeting, using this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85159878263...

Meeting Passcode: theatre20
“What’s great about doing this through Zoom,” says Gustafson, “is that not only can I get brilliant actors from this area, but actors I love who have moved to a different state can also be involved.”
The Zoom event will be produced by Becca Easley.
