one-acts at City Life, Sept. 6-8

"Moth" by Olivia Brownlee and "Light Movement" by Megan Becker (two half-hour plays) will be performed on Thursday-Saturday, Sept. 6-8, at 8 pm at the City Life Center on the corner of Ash St. and Sharp Ave. (near the Maple Street Bridge).
Tickets: $10; $7.50, students and teachers. Call 327-1113.

Presented by a group calling itself the Quickenings: Brownlee (of the Rockin' B Ranch Cowboy Supper Show and CenterStage's *Honky-Tonk Laundry*), Nick Preuninger (Whitworth theater grad, now getting an M.Div. at Princeton) and Becker (a graduate of New York's Actor's Studio).

"Moth" is a musical play with a cast of seven Shakespearean characters. It's about identity — how underdogs like Moth (who has lines in *A Midsummer Night's Dream* like "And I!" and "Hail!" and not much else — get their identities determined by the overdogs of the world.
In "Light Movement," a young woman defines her ideal man and sets out to find him with predictably disillusioning results.
