Satirical examinations of fear, experienced by an accountant-actor and young students confronting the consequences of sin, are on stage this month at Bay Theatre in two works by playwright Christopher Durang. The fears are revealed in Durang's one-act plays, "The Actor's Nightmare" and "Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All for You. " "Sister Mary" won the Obie award for its off-Broadway run from 1981 to 1983, and "Actor's Nightmare" is a zany exploration of growing absurdity.
