Five short original plays will be presented by Wits End Theatre in two performances Saturday and Sunday in Chatfield.
Each play is locally written and runs for about 10 to 12 minutes. “The creation and staging of brand new plays right here in Chatfield is an exciting new undertaking for us,” said Joan Verdegan, president of the Wits End board of directors.
Verdegan is one of the five playwrights whose work will be produced. The others are Samantha Gibson, Joe Chase, and Chatfield High School students Blair Crouch and Devann Harris.
Verdegan’s play is a slice-of-life comedy, “You Look Exactly Like Someone.” Gibson’s play consists of four monologues exploring life as a millennial. Harris’ play is a dialogue, “Love with a Price.” Crouch has written “Cliche,” about two strangers who find themselves in a bookstore after hours. Chase’s play, “Lincoln and Herndon,” is a section from his full-length play about Abraham Lincoln.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Chatfield Center for the Arts, 405 Main St. S. All five plays will be presented at both performances. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students, available at the door.
