The Lander Players Bring Five New Plays To Life in October
Written by Staff Advisor, Laura Dennin
GREENWOOD, SC - Depression? Demons? Drugs? Drama? Find out what these have in common at the Lander Players’ One-Act Plays performances in October. Come experience five never-before-seen plays written exclusively for the Lander Players annual Playwriting Festival. This inaugural performance includes a variety of genres with scripts containing heavy emotional issues like depression, addiction, inner demons, and self esteem, as well as lighter moments of unadulterated guilty pleasure.
The scripts selected were written by current Lander Players members, but their annual Playwriting Festival accepts submissions from anyone interested in having their original script produced. The chosen scripts, “Date Night with Depression” by Lea Toby, “Stagnant” by Laura Riddle Dennin, “Personal Demons” by Jacob Roten, and "Party Games" and “The Real Housewife of Athens County”, both by Keith Dumais, are full of light-hearted humor, emotional turmoil, sincerity, and more than a little satire.
Due to the nature of the plays’ content, this event is for mature audiences only. You must be 18+ or have a Lander ID, or be 13+ with the supervision of a parent. All Lander students, faculty, and staff get 1 free ticket with their Lander ID, but everyone must reserve or purchase a ticket through the website, or pay cash for a ticket from the Cultural Center Box Office. General admission tickets are only $5, and will also be available Oct. 15-21 at the Box Office.
This collection of one-act plays will be performed in Lander University’s Greenroom Studio, CC-220, on October 18, 19, and 20 at 7 pm, and October 20 and 21 at 2 pm. All five plays are performed at each showing.
