final show in this year's FreshInk Series, How the World Began, opens this
FreshInk Series is a way for students to get involved in theatre and perform
important new plays. They are performed as a staged reading which means that
the actors have their scripts in front of them. All FreshInk productions are free and
everyone is invited to join the cast and director afterwards for a talk about the show.
the World Began, by Catherine Trieschmann, is a powerful story about a science
teacher from Manhattan who arrives in rural Kansas after a tornado has ripped
the town apart. <6.5pt background-color:="" white="" span=""/>Susan finds herself thrown into an ethical firestorm making a comment
about how life on earth began. The compassionate and honest play focuses
on the tension between creationism and evolution, and how this is taught in
schools. It is also a powerful psychological investigation into
individual responses to these issues and the ways in which people are driven to
extreme ideological positions in times of stress.
Show times are Feb 20 and 21 at 7:30 and Feb 22 at 2. All performances take place in
Studio A of the Rita Tallent Picken Regional Center for the Arts and
