GRHS performs One Act –Theatrically Bold

GRHS performs One Act –Theatrically Bold

This year’s one-act play is a meditation on the horror of war set in 1990. It brings the spirit of Euripides to a Serbian detention camp for Muslim women. Men are pitted against women, Christians against Muslims, and Croats against Serbs in a drama that bares the inner conflicts that result when society is governed by illogical ethnic hatreds. 

A hard-boiled, devoutly Christian guard is torn by conflicting inner voices as he interrogates a prisoner and her mother about an explosion that killed sixteen of his soldiers. The arrival of a new, wounded camp commandant triggers murder and inevitable catastrophes reminiscent of ancient tragedy. 

The public performance will be November 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Gordon City Auditorium. Admission is $5 a person. The play is directed by Candie Johnson with the assistance of Ryan Lovell. The cast and crew is as follows:

Vlaco – Zak Wellnitz
