Laurel Koerner, director of theater, said this play will challenge her students in different ways.
?This contemporary play is clever, quirky, darkly comic and stunningly theatrical,? Koerner said. ?It will require creativity on the part of the cast, which is made up of five women and four men.
?The cast is working with this material in a way that makes our telling of these stories unique from any other interpretation,? Koerner added.
?They have a lot of creative control, so the humor is all their own. This play shifts from laugh-out-loud funny to hauntingly beautiful and back again in a matter of minutes.
