Are you listening to the Light?
It is 1910, somewhere outside of Philadelphia, 12-year-old Lucretia sings, though she doesn't really know why or what or even how to sing. For Lucretia is a member of the Religious Society of Friends and music, on the whole, is considered frivolous, even downright lascivious. Especially because of the dancing that quickly comes with music. So it simply isn't right. The community has to decide what to do. A Friendly Farce.
Due to Hollins University's Culture of Care protocols regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, all audience members will be required to show proof of full vaccination (either two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson) and at least one booster AT THE DOOR to attend a performance. Everyone is also required to wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth at all times while in the theatre.
Each summer at the end of July, we present a three-day event showcasing readings of student work from the Playwright's Lab. These readings are minimally staged for the general public and close to a dozen theatre professionals as respondents from as far away as Los Angeles and from as close as right here in Roanoke. Many of the plays that first saw public viewing at our summer reading festival have gone on to be published and produced by major companies. Get acquainted with these plays, playwrights, actors and directors before they are famous! You'll also be helping to develop these new works by engaging in the conversation with our students, faculty, and guest artists.
