Staged readings of two student-written plays March 6-7 in Chapman Theatre

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

 

MANHATTAN — Staged readings of plays by two Kansas State University master's students in drama therapy will be presented at 7:30 p.m. March 6-7 in Nichols Hall's Mark A. Chapman Theatre at Kansas State University. Admission is free.

"Catcalls" is by Jessica Munoz, Manhattan, and "Sheperdless" is by Jessie Greenfield, Raytown, Missouri.

A nonfiction play, "Catcalls" questions and explores how stereotypes and gender roles have shaped women's experiences and society's view of what street harassment is. Joanna Abillama, master's student in drama therapy, Lebanon, will direct "Catcalls."

"Sheperdless" explores the different perspectives of LGBTQ community members who have grown up in Christian households. The characters have all faced some form of discrimination from the general public and their own families. The play focuses on the true nature of the struggles people within the LGBTQ community face. "Sheperdless" is directed by Cory Jennett, senior in secondary education-speech, Prairie Village.

Between plays there will be a 15-20 minute intermission. A talkback for "Sheperdless" will be Friday, March 6, after the performance, and a talkback will follow the performance of "Catcalls" on Saturday, March 7.
