Fine Day For A Hunt

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Tom MacIntyre 

  • Notes

    A one-act version of Fine Day For A Hunt was early performed as part of Punchbag's 'Go On Red' (3 one-act plays by Tom MacIntyre) in February 1991. The play was subsequently rewritten and presented in the full-length as listed.

  • Synopsis

    Fine Day For a Hunt presents a chase. Huntsmen come crashing on to the stage, beagles strain to pick up the scent, spectators lean forward and the commentators give the odds. What is being hunted, however, is a young naked female.
