One Act Plays Begin Friday

With two plays written by students, and all four directed, produced and performed by students, the Phoenix Players will host “One Act Plays 2008” at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, at Feb. 22 and 23 in the Bartlett Theatre.

The plays include:

“War of Atlantis,” written and directed by Kelly Morrell '10, is a comedy about a king's struggle toward the realization that he has gone to war without a good reason.

“Memory,” written and directed by Andrea Rocchio '11, is a drama that explores the memory of a past love who comes back to haunt the inventor of the very machine meant to erase his past.

Jonah Levy '08 will direct playwright Bertolt Brecht's gripping drama “The Informer.” In this play, tensions spike in 3rd Reich Germany when a husband and wife frantically try to figure out whether their 8-year-old son is an informer for the Hitler Youth Party.

Sam Page '10 will direct Jonathan Rand's short comedy, “Drugs Are Bad.” In this comedy, two parents persuade their son to try all sorts of drugs in order for him to discover what he really wants out of life.

Everyone is invited to attend the student productions.
