a series of three one-act performances directed by student directors
Luna Park – directed by Haylee Pittenger
Luna Park is a story of a young man in the Great Depression who is unhappy with how his life went from being wealthy to poor after the death of his father. After going back in time to try to separate his parents while courting he realizes it is fate.
Sure Thing – directed by Nicole Philbrick
Sure Thing is a short comic play by David Ives featuring a chance meeting of two characters, Betty and Bill, whose conversation is continually reset by the use of a ringing bell, starting over when one of them responds negatively to the other. Ives brings one thing into question: What if we could change a person to become your perfect match just as easily as ringing a bell?
Hope ‘n Mercy - directed by DeEnna Fullenwider
Hope ‘N Mercy is a tragic love story about a man and a woman who themselves into a lot of trouble. Julene Hope and Bradley Jenkins have a Bonnie and Clyde relationship with an interesting love that leads to their death. As Bradley is about to be put to death–the reason being because of the fact that he killed Julene–his one hope is that he will be able to get mercy from Julene’s grandmother, Marcia Hope. Marcia, however, is very reluctant to give Bradley that mercy. In fact, she says ” I ain’t Jesus Christ, boy. I’m Marcia Hope and I don’t forgive.” Throughout the play we see the story of Bradley and Julene and the events that lead up to Julene’s death. After watching all of that happen, will Marcia be able to forgive Bradley for all that he has done?
