Happy Accidents Inc.

Blind faith will be the death of us all.
50 years into the future the United States society has fallen under rule of a conservative, evangelical state. The populace is divided into sectors based upon moral standing in society, and Betty and Alan West are looking to move their way up, but after illegally having a second child they turn to Happy Accidents Inc. to help them with their little problem. Happy Accidents Inc. is a look into a futuristic society that has fallen victim to conservatism.
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.
