Spring 2013 Senior Studios are in the middle of a three-night run with three plays being presented by senior drama majors Kate Chiappe, Samantha Eberle and Amanda Werley. Performances will continue tonight and Friday, May 3 and 4, at 8 p.m. in the Margaret Jonsson Theater.
Chiappe directs Nobel laureate Luigi Pirandello's "I'm Dreaming, But Am I?", a play in which a woman who feels guilty about no longer loving her husband has a hyper-realistic dream about confessing it to him...or is it real? Eberle has chosen 20th century American playwright Thornton Wilder's "Someone from Assisi" about a day in the lives of Sts. Francis and Clare. A.A. Milne's "The Ugly Duckling" is Werley's choice. Written by the author of the Winnie-the-Pooh series, this comedy focuses on the romantic travails of a princess who grew up thinking she was ugly.
"These students have been working with their plays for almost 14 months. After choosing their senior studios in the fall of junior year, majors write a 20-30 page research paper, before designing their productions senior year," said Kyle Lemieux, assistant professor and chair of drama. "I invite all faculty and staff to enjoy the end result of all this hard work by these three seniors and their casts and crews."
