Why do we pretend? This is just one of many questions raised by a group of friends as they prepare for a fancy dress party.


Chris and Maria, a seemingly perfect couple, are soon to be married. And like all soon-to-be-married couples they feel they should play matchmakers to two of their respective friends: Jo, a self-help author in need of help, and Chloe, a well-meaning yet naive bundle of rainbows and kittens disguised as a woman. Will they get together? Should they get together? Find out in Action!, a new one-act comedy about movies, snacks, self-analysis and dressing up your personality, giving a whole new meaning to the term role play.
