Beacon Rug by Stephen W. Young
BEACON RUG is a comedy where pranks are pulled, lessons are learned, and all is not what it seems. From ethnic misunderstandings to dire consequences, this two-act play is a prime example of how actions can speak louder than words and have unintended results. From start to finish, the play features wall-to-wall laughs for all ages.
There’s Trick - the master of practical jokes who doesn’t know when to stop, Bernard – a bonafide Beacon who’s a little too perfect in his ways, Ana – the mail deliverer whose ideas about falling in love are recipes for mayhem, Eddie – the ever smiling rug cleaner who lives in a world of his own and never speaks, Rissa – the potential girlfriend who quickly learns that romance isn’t all fun and games, Wayne – the new guy who finds himself in the middle of something he can’t avoid, Guenther – the no nonsense owner of Beacon Rug who has no time or patience for mischief, and Mrs. Brydges – Beacon Rug’s best customer who mistakenly thinks she’s dealing with the man at the top.
The play was produced and directed by the playwright for 5 shows from June 20 to 23, 2018. You can view the play in its entirety on YouTube HERE!
