List of Upcoming Plays
Fall 2013 Student One-Act Play Festival
by Ethan Coen
Directed by Michael Davis
Written by Ethan Cohen, one of the infamous filmmaking duo, the Cohen Brothers, "Talking Cure" centers around Jerry, a mailman recently incarcerated in a neuropsychiatric hospital for going postal. Through a series of short scenes directed by Michael Davis, Cohen entertains his audience with the therapist’s endeavor to gain the upper hand over his ostensible patient who refuses to admit the existence of a problem.
by Christopher Durang
Directed by Brendan Hutchinson
This wacky comedy introduces the audience to Jane, a young woman recovering from a nervous breakdown and suicide attempt, who is tormented by the insane individuals of her life. Her mother believes she invented cheese and banana bread and is having an affair with a man that is Jane’s brother, father, grandfather, or a count. Just when she begins to find solace in her psychiatrist, he too adds fuel to the hopelessness of isolating anyone’s identity in this hilarious look into depression and mental illness in a world full of contradiction.
by Woody Allen
Directed by Sara Dunham
Set within low-cost post-wedding love nest, the members of a dysfunctional Long Island wedding party gather to ignite an evening of hilarity and secret spilling. Allen masterfully creates a relentless string of revelations about each character’s most humiliating defects and most intimate personal scandals that soon becomes a wedding night the audience will not forget.
