About the Play:

Lunacy: A Bathroom Trilogy is a collection of three one-act plays by Richard Turtle. These short plays – a tragedy sandwiched between two comedies – are set in an apartment bathroom on the full moon. Revealed are the hilarious, tragic and touching secrets, dreams and realities of tenants whose lives change when they are unable to open an unpredictable bathroom door.

In The Lunatic from Number Seven manic self-discovery ensues when a failing artist is locked in the bathroom while his girlfriend is away. He's the man with problems to solve, feelings to process and lots to say. (First staged in 1997 at The Guild Hall in Peterborough, Ontario; Cast: 1 male)

Sing a Pretty Song is the chilling tale of an abused woman who confronts her demons and tires to make sense of her life. (First performed in 1998 at The Pinnacle Playhouse in Belleville, Ontario; Cast: 1 female)

In Search and Rescue a young man finds himself tongue tied when the plumber he called turns out to be the woman of his dreams. If only he could get the door open and his foot out of his mouth. (First staged in 1998 at The Pinnacle Playhouse in Belleville, Ontario; Cast: 1 female, 1 male)

Lunacy: A Bathroom Trilogy was first staged in 1999 by Trenton Community Players at The Guild Hall in Peterborough, Ontario during the Eastern Ontario Drama League Spring Play Festival, where it won the Kingston Trophy for Best Canadian Play. Since then it has been performed in regional repertory, high school, college, and community theatre productions in Canada and throughout the United States.

Cast: 2 female, 2 male
