Public invited to student-authored play at Widener
Widener University's Lone Brick Theatre Company will present Student Voices.
Chester, Pa. – Widener University's Lone Brick Theatre Company will present Student Voices, a studio event featuring a student-authored play, on Sunday, April 29 at 3:30 p.m. in Freedom Hall Amphitheater. The performance is free and open to the public.
The half-hour reading "The Clinic" was written by junior biomedical engineering major Rebecca Gomezrueda. The actors include students Taylor Blum, Alex Ross, Carolyn Lodge, Jared Zimmerman, Kassie Ramos and Nathan Mirando.
The staged reading will follow the traditional format of minimal stage movement and no costume or set, which allows the impact of the writing and acting to take center stage.
"It is such an honor to see my short script come to life," Gomezrueda said. "I am very proud of the piece that I have written, and of the actors performing it. I am hoping that "The Clinic" will keep the audience thinking after the performance is over."
Student Voices is a collaboration between Widener's English and creative writing departments and Lone Brick Theatre Company, which is Widener's resident theatre company dedicated to non-traditional theatre through innovative scripts, staging, directing and performance.
