Four Student Directors, Five Short Plays May 17 - 19
Four Student Directors, Five Short Plays May 17 - 19

On May 17 and 18 at 7:00 p.m., Bronwyn Beardsley '20 will be presenting her original, one-act play, The Last Five Days, in the Scott Center for Arts & Sciences Black Box Theatre. The play was conceived of, written, directed, and produced by Beardsley and the performances are culminating components of her year-long Independent Study. The piece follows the lives of six teenagers who are trying to navigate everything from relationships to family issues, from the mundane to the tragic. The play deals with mature themes and contains some adult language, so parental discretion is advised. Though the admission to these two performances is free, contributions to the Theatre Department are welcome and much appreciated.

On May 19 at 7:00 p.m., honors students from the Theatre Arts 2 class will be presenting four short plays, a total of approximately 45 minutes in length. Directors include Luke Atherton '18, Chloe Lowell '19, and Anna Zhong '19. As these are published plays, there will be a $5.00 admission fee to cover the cost of royalties. Again, some adult language surfaces in the three plays, so parental discretion is advised. The plays include, Sure Thing by David Mamet, The Philadelphia by David Ives, Drugs are Bad by Jonathan Rand, and Something About Eve by Lynne Halliday.

Seating is limited at all performances, so arrive early!
