DNA May 16  
Theater On The Run DNA
 
DNA is a relevant and important piece that will challenge and enlighten audiences with its unique style and raw energy. A group of teenagers do something bad, really bad, then panic and cover the whole thing up. But when they find that the cover up unites them and brings harmony to their once fractious lives, where's the incentive to put things right? Written by Dennis Kelly (author of the book for Matilda the Musical), DNA is play that explores bullying, friendship, social responsibility, morality and leadership. Through this play students will learn the value of standing up for what's right and knowing when to use your voice even when it's hard.

The Day Emily Married Jul 10 - Aug 2, 2020  
Writer's Center The Day Emily Married
 
Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Horton Foote's play is set in 1950's Harrison, Texas. Emily Davis is about to be married and is determined not to let her parents talk her and her new husband, the strappingly handsome and ambitious Richard Murray, into living with them. But Emily's mother, Lyd, an expert in emotional blackmail, will not be deterred from getting her own way. Per New York Times' Ben Brantley's 2004 review, "If Harrison's stories of wrecked marriages, closet vices and family feuds give it a surface resemblance to Peyton Place, it also has a fair amount in common with the blasted heath of King Lear and the arid fields of Samuel Beckett's tramps.
