Second-year Theatre students star in Chaos
Second-year students of Dawson's Professional Theatre Program are presenting Chaos by Laura Lomas, directed by Stefanie Buxton.
Chaos is a series of interconnected stories, where characters search for meaning in the modern world. British playwright Laura Lomas says, "I was thinking about how I felt as a young person and how the world felt. The word "chaos" kept springing out of that. I wanted to write something in the gesture of that Chaos, as a celebration of it. ... I didn't want it to make sense, but I did want it to feel alive - all the ways I remember feeling as a teenager."
Chaos runs March 23-26 at 8 p.m. and is PWYW (pay-what-you-want) at the door. Tickets can be booked on Eventbrite; click on Read More link.
