See How They Run Director’s Note

I am very excited about directing the final production
of the 2012 season, See How They Run , written by
Phillip King. This play is a fast- paced comedy in
which people enter and exit through four different
doors, so that you never know who will come in or go
out or at what moment they will enter or leave. As a
result, the characters are always confused as to the
true meaning of what is happening. I think the Putnam
County Playhouse audience will find it hilarious — I
know I do. The nine characters in the play include an
actress and actor, four people in ministerial dress, a
stodgy Bishop, and a cockney maid. The crux of the
matter is “who is the one person in disguise who is
actually an escaped prisoner”. Surprises abound. I will
be looking for both players and crew people. I hope the
players will be those people who like to have fun on
stage, have a great work ethic, and will provide the
right chemistry with the other members of the cast. The
crew and staff are what brings everything together and
gives it that finished quality we have come to expect
from a Putnam County Playhouse production. I hope to see
many of you at auditions and all of you in the audience.
