Two senior theatre majors will be directing two short comic plays during King College
Theatre’s short play festival, taking place Nov. 14 and 15.
Christina Matheson will direct Elaine May’s “The Way of All Fish.” The two character,
one-act play follows a self-absorbed executive, and her seemingly drab secretary.
Over an impromptu dinner together, the executive’s condescending graciousness drains
away as the secretary explains her fantasy of gaining immortality by killing someone
famous and successful, like her boss. Sophomore Desiree Jordan and junior Chelsea
Herron play the roles of the executive and secretary.
The second short play, Walter Wykes', “Family 2.0,” will be directed by Chip Hanks.
This play follows the life of a man who is trying to find meaning in his life. The
play tells the story of a man who, having grown weary of his boring routine, decides
to shake things up by invading a stranger’s home and convincing the family he finds
there to accept him as their new husband/father. The five person cast includes: sophomore
Natasha Trombly, senior Tinsley Long, sophomore Josh Bartosch, senior TJ Libby, and
junior Trung Phan.
“King Theatre aims to prepare our theatre majors for work in the theatre after graduation;
we require our students to present major projects such as directing a play, designing,
and research in their junior and senior years,” said Elizabeth Dollar, associate professor
of Theatre and director of King’s Theatre program. “Our students graduate from King
ready to enter the competitive field of theatre arts and post-graduate study.”
The plays begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Building on King’s main campus in Bristol,
Tenn. Admission is $5.00 for the general public. King students will be admitted free
with their King ID.
Audience members should be advised that both plays contain some mature content, and
they are not recommended for children. Tickets will be available at the door beginning
one hour before the show starts. For more information, contact Elizabeth Dollar at
email@example.com or 423.652.4839.
