Penn’s Village Presents Two One-Act Plays Featuring the Penn’s Village Players!

“Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey, Part II, or How We Got America’s Most Wanted and the New York Post,” by Jonathan Reynolds


“The Case of the Really Big Dog of the Baskervilles - A Justin Thyme Mystery” by Bruce Kane

The Penn’s Village Players are back with these hilarious, if slightly obscure, one-act plays. “Lines Composed…” was written when Rupert Murdoch owned the Post and had just bough Fox Broadcasting, an era when New Yorkers were being served a daily diet of violence and mayhem. In “The Case of the Really Big Dog…,” fictional detective Justin Thyme finds that nobody is what they seem when he heads to Sherlock Holmes country to find his client frightened to death by a 400-year old hound the size of a Buick.

Jonathan Reynolds had a wide-ranging career, writing successful plays, helping write a famously bad movie, and turning out lively articles on how to cook the perfect turkey and all manner of other food-related subjects. Bruce Kane’s plays include "Ruby Of Elsinore," which won the All Ireland One Act Play Competition. Before playwriting he wrote for television and the movies, best known for writing the "moo goo gai pan" episode of "The Bob Newhart Show" which, at one time, was named by TV Guide as one of the ten best television episodes of all time.
