SEATTLE -- Comedy legends Elaine May and Alan Arkin star in the world premiere of Power Plays, an evening of three one-act comedies, at A Contemporary Theatre (ACT) in Seattle.

Written and performed by May and Arkin, Power Plays began previews Mar. 6, opens Mar. 12 and runs through Mar. 29 as a special non-subscription event.

The show is being produced in association with Julian Schlossberg, Meyer Ackerman and Ben Sprecher prior to its Off-Broadway engagement in April.

The first act, written by May, concerns a busy executive and her mousy secretary. In the second act, by Arkin, two would-be criminals rehearse a crime. The third act, by May, is a farce that erupts in a dentist's office.

Arkin is directing. Also in the cast are May's daughter, Jeanne Berlin, an Academy Award nominee for her supporting role in The Heartbreak Kid, and Arkin's son, Anthony. A Contemporary Theatre is located at 700 Union St., downtown Seattle. For tickets, call (206) 292-7676.
