Association dock and tennis. 5 bedroom house and boat house. Exclusive $2,950,000 By REMY TUMIN VERYDAY LIFE CAN EASILY turn into theatre. Political theatre, familial theatre, personal theatre: We encounter it all the time. But good writers and directors can translate that onstage and make the audience connect with a scene they may have never encountered before. Even better, playwrights, directors and actors can translate it into one-act plays. Island Theatre Workshop (ITW) opens its annual one-act play festival tonight with works by George Bernard Shaw, Christopher Durang, Mary Lou- ise Wilson and an adaptation of William Shakespeare's Hamlet. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Katharine Cornell Theatre in Vineyard Haven this weekend and next weekend, as well as matinees this Saturday and both Sundays. Kevin Ryan, vice president of ITW, chose many of the plays being per- formed because he recognized people he knew in the characters. "When I read Deer Play a year ago, I was hooked because who hasn't made a change in their life and done something new and run up against a wall?" Mr. Ryan, who's directing the one-act by Mary Louise Wilson, said earlier this week. "Who hasn't done something and it completely changes their life, if not for that moment but the long term? It caught me. It is a bit of a farce, but I just found when I read it these are people I know." Deer Play tells the story of two long- time actresses catching up on old times, one of whom is still active on Broadway and the other who has decided to drop the act and take up gardening. Linda Berg paused in the middle of her line at rehearsal on Tuesday after- noon. She plays the daydreaming but borderline hysterical gardener.

I kind of think I don't want to listen to her at all, how do I ... these are all such non sequiturs, I can't decide what Madge's motivation is." Ms. Berg was spewing out complex Latin words of Madge's prized flowers, effortlessly letting phlox paniculata and rosa rugosa role off her tongue, while Madge's friend Mabel (played by Shelly Brown) listened with one ear and a raised eyebrow. "You're talking at each other, you're DIAN not dialoguing," Mr. Ryan directed. "Stay in your world, stay up. This is the joy." Ms. Berg and Ms. Brown have worked together many times before, and their chemistry is infectious. Many of the players have worked with each other in the past and been a I rLg![: TW for years, making it easi r f6r fhem to pick up on tones and gestures. For- mer ITW artistic director Lee Fierro opens the festival with a dialogue by Christopher Durang in Mrs. Sorken. HILLANTIQUE Celebrate a Period Island setting combined with modem living in this 11 room, 4 The title character has been asked to give the opening comments to a one- act play festival, much like ITW's, and gives a brief overview of the history of drama. "It follows through a very twisted pathway of interconnection," Mr. Ryan explained."To work with someone in a monologue situation is very different. You're always looking for wonderful characters, whether they're tragic, tri- umphant or comical. With Mrs. Sorken, the character jumped right off the page as a very endearing person that I would like to hear speak." Other monologues in the festival in- elude a performance by Mr. Ryan about the reality and faults of Prince Charm- ing, as well as Brian Morey performing I Am Hamlet. Mr. Ryan describes Joe Siricussa's adaptation of Shakespeare's play as a "very modern, bordering on pop/slash rock musical version of the story in 11 scenes."
