About the Play:

Why Do We Laugh? is a one-act play by Stephen Gregg. Eight actors play two characters at age 6, 16, 45 and 67 to show the audience how people can change each other throughout their lives. Especially recommended for school and contest use.

Why Do We Laugh? is a fast-paced comedy about a lifelong love story and what it means to grow old together. At age 6, Meredith Wilfred loves to tell people that she hates her neighbour, Andrew Powers. At age 16, she tells Andrew the same thing but goes to the dance with him anyway. At 45, Meredith and Andy have a great deal to tell each other: most married couples do. And, even at 66, Meredith is still learning about, and from, Andrew. This is a fine contest play because it is both easy to stage and a challenge. All eight characters – two people at four different times in their lives – are on-stage at the same time. The result is a play about love (and hate) and the way people change each other.

Why Do We Laugh? is a contest winning play that has been endorsed by both Dramatics magazine and Other Stages.

Cast: 4 females, 4 males.
