Boy Meets Girl
By Sam Wolfson
Directed by Emily Schomp '18 and Jake Miller '18
This comedic one-act play follows the romantic relationship of Sam and Katie through its ups-and-downs. Relationships can be difficult, especially when you're five-years-old and in pre-school! Through dealing with the strains of girl-scout cookies sales, having a plus-one at the birthday party, and sleeping-around at naptime, Sam and Katie mirror adults grappling with the difficulties of a modern-day relationship. A cute, heartwarming satire on 21st-century dating.
They Walk Among Us
By Nicholas "Nicky" O'Neil
Directed by Julia Nosel '19 and Kelsey Warner '19
In this drama, Levi, Cyrus, and Grace are three angels who arrive in New York City on missions from "The Big Man". One young man, Adam, quickly catches their attention when his struggle with Catholicism and homosexuality is demonized in a hate rally. In their comedic antics, the angels deal with the hate that pervades humanity, and yet find hope in the work that they do. When one miracle saves a life, hope floes to the audience, and serves as a reminder that angels walk among us.
