Act Naturally is an original play that tells the story of an actor's quest for a seemingly unattainable Equity card. In a moment of desperation, he agrees to be the understudy in a One-Man-Show tribute to Ringo Starr, with the understanding that he will get his card but will never be required to actually perform. Accordingly, he doesn't bother to read the script, see the show or try on his costume. Not surprisingly, he is called and although grossly unprepared, he is not willing to sacrifice the equity card that is finally within his grasp. So he does what any self-respecting actor desperate for his equity card would do: he wings it. In the span of 90 minutes, he breathes life into a host of characters and unwittingly uses his life as art, managing not only to connect with his past, but to alter the course of three intersecting lives.
