  For the One Act plays this year, the Peoples Academy Stage Company will be performing "Arrivals" by Jerome McDonough and "Elephant's Graveyard" by George Brandt.

Arrivals is an adaptation of the 1775 Restoration Comedy "The Rivals" by Richard Brinsley Sheridan. It is the oldest, or most historic, play that the stage company has performed since our production of "Midsummer Nights Dream" (by William Shakespeare) in 2012. Peoples has a history with The Rivals that dates back past the building itself, as pictures from Peoples' 1914 production can be found hanging on the wall of the auditorium.
Elephant's Graveyard has a deep tradition of being performed at one act play festivals around New England, with one production making it all the way to the New England Drama Festival in 2011. Most recently Elephant's Graveyard was seen on the Vermont State Drama Festival from the Long Trail School under the direction of Tracey Wesley.
