Three one-act plays, three nights only

one-actPLU’s chapter of Alpha Psi Omega, the national theatre honor society, presents its annual One-Act Festival from Thursday, January 23 through Saturday, January 25 at 7:30pm in the Studio Theater of the Karen Hille Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

This year’s show, titled “Gone Mad, Will Return”, explores many styles of theatre with Naomi in the Living Room by Christopher Durang, directed by Jessi Marlow ’16, Hamletmachine by Heiner Müller, directed by Amelia Heath ’15, and [This Space Intentionally Left Blank] to be written by the cast and crew of [This Space Intentionally Left Blank], directed by David Gordon ’14.

The students are challenged with this quick turnaround production – they audition, rehearse, open and close in about two and a half weeks.

“Two and a half weeks is a very short rehearsal period, and these are very challenging shows. But pressure makes diamonds,” David Gordon, Director of [This Space Intentionally Left Blank], says.

Tickets are available at the door. Tickets are $5 general admission and $3 for PLU students. Thursday, January 23 is a student preview, students (non-PLU included) get in free with Student ID.
