Join the University Park Department of Drama for a digital presentation of Christopher Durang's hilarious "The Actor's Nightmare." George Spelvin is a mild mannered accountant who suddenly finds himself onstage as the leading man in a play that he doesn't remember rehearsing. Based around the real phenomenon of being in a play and not knowing your lines, George does his best to traverse the egos of the other actors and the difficulties performing in a play he has no memory of. Will George be able to figure which play he is supposed to be in, or will his nightmare continue?
