Five student directed one-act plays to debut at The U
Three performances are scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 13: "Chase," "The Problem," and "The Spotted Man." "Chase," written and directed by Paul Petersen, is a coming of age comedy about love, loss and growing up while "The Problem," which is by A.R. Gurney and directed by David Mancini, humorously deals with marriage, communication and how couples keep their union exciting. The evening ends with tragic-comedy, "The Spotted Man," written by Walter Wykes and directed by Kyra Tietjen.
"Ledge, Ledger and Legend" and "A Tight Spot" are showcased on the evening of Friday, Nov. 14. "Ledge, Ledger and Legend," written by Paul Elliot and directed by Rachel Foulks, is a dark farce examining suicide and entrepreneurship. "A Tight Spot," meanwhile, is a mature comedy written and directed by Adam Hansen that deals with the underbelly of the adult entertainment industry.
