“Trifles” in the Foundry Theater
- Published: September 18, 2014
Hannah Craig and Parker Phelan, two students in Geneva Gano’s “Introduction to Drama” literature class at Antioch College, will be the first to perform a play in the recently renovated Foundry Theater.
The two students worked with Gano, Gabrielle Civil, associate professor of performance, and other theater staff to design a minimal set and to truncate and adapt Susan Glaspell’s “Trifles” for a two-person performance. They are both excited and nervous to be a part of the first play put on by students in the theater space since the college’s closure in 2008.
“It’s scary to be the first student performance. We want to make a good first impression,” said Craig. “But it’s also really exciting.”
The one-time-only performance will be held in the experimental theater at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 18 and is open to the public.
