    ~ Distending an Earlier Work ~
    PART II-Q of “THE GREAT SECULSION” MYTH

    Written/Directed/Performed by Scott Shannon
    Dramaturgical Intervention by Alicia McLaughlin
    X is back in another Solo-Shadow-Session but instead of offering a Confessional, this time he’s preparing to share some bad news and hoping the audience can help him practice the sad saga he has to share with the Other Shadows. Join X for this theatrical Eulogy to a Storyteller, a Tale of Woe he has to weave to soothe the sorrow.

    X is here; You are not

    In memory of an Unseen Shadow.

    Ducky & Murdock

    STANDING AT OPPOSITE ENDS ARE DUCKY & MURDOCK
    written by Scott Shannon

    CAST/CREW

    Writer / Director – Scott Shannon

    A seemingly simple story about a young woman and young man in love during wartime, but with a Nasty touch from the Shadows.



    STANDING AT OPPOSITE ENDS ARE DUCKY & MURDOCK
    Notes – May/2022

    I’m at a stage of development now where I really need to work with some actors … original plans fell through this year due to life, prior commitments of others, etc. … so, instead of staging this at the 2022 Fundy Fringe Fest I’m altering summer plans back to a solo performance/creative experience* and will revisit an old friend to see what else may transpire in his world …

    * I seem most interested in exploring this unknown future as the world where my plays occur – everything I’ve completed or am currently working on ties into “The Great Seclusion”.
