The proprietor of Dream Away Lodge, Daniel Osman, plays 40 roles in Fully Committed, a play by Becky Mode.

In fact, he does it so well, New Stage Performing Arts has extended the run of the comedy for an additional three performances. Originally slated to end on May 11, the play has added performances on Thursday, Friday and Sunday (May 15, 16 & 18).

This comedy about the restaurant business is being undertaken by New Stage Performing Arts and is directed by Laura Margolis at the Mixed Company Theatre in Great Barrington. It began its run on April 24.

The show itself centers on an out-of-work actor named Sam, who is a reservationist at a trendy restaurant in New York City. The humor comes when Sam has to deal with the hilarious but often insane phone calls from the patrons, restaurant staff and his family in this one-man show, where the phones never stop ringing.

Set in the aftermath of a cataclysmic event, “DARK” chronicles one family’s attempt to survive in a small cabin atop a lonely mountain. Stylized physical action, dark comedy and hauntingly beautiful songs unravel a story of desperation, resilience and hope.

Building on the original premiere, this new version of “DARK” is from Kickwheel Ensemble Theatre and is directed by Adam Sugarman. It includes architectural adjustments to the script, a heightened sense of style within the piece and the addition of a revised sound score, performed live by Peter Wise.

Conceived and developed by Kickwheel in 2012, “DARK,” written by Timothy Ryan Olson with original music by Peter Wise, received its world premiere at the 8th annual Berkshire Fringe festival. Inspired by audience feedback and ongoing interest in the project, the company has spent the last several months in the lab work-shopping, re-imagining and streamlining the piece with an eye towards a US and UK tour in 2016.
