The Play

Deep in the Amazon rainforest a brilliant scientist hires a local big game hunter to search for the love of her life who has run away in a jealous rage. When another man appears from her past, suddenly nothing is as it seems.

Written by Rural Root’s own Peter Veale, who also appeared on stage with Rural Root and Kanata Theatre, this one act comedy is Rural Root’s entry into the EODL One-Act Play Festival. 

The Eastern Ontario Drama League (EODL) holds an annual festival of one-act plays, hosted by one of the member theatre companies. This year, the festival is in Perth, hosted by Studio Theatre Productions. Nine theatre companies will be competing on November 8, 9 and 10.
