Bench & Somebody Wake Me Up – MVCAC Saturday Night ReZoom Theater
May 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10
MVCAC’s Saturday Night ReZoom Theater proudly presents two original virtual dramatic one acts on Zoom:
Bench – Written and directed by Ed Corrigan, this is a drama exploring time, space, perception and multiple realities existing within a live theatre experience – it follows the beautiful journey of Samuel the hero, and his mysterious ally, Lailah.
Somebody Wake Me Up – Written by Jonathan Mayer, directed by Dan Morris. This is based upon the playwright’s experience as a 16-year-old student at Kent State University in 1969-1970, and his friendship and love for Allison Krause, who was one of the students who was slaughtered on May 4, 1970, during an anti war protest on campus, following President Nixon’s announcement of formal US involvement in Cambodia. The play is at once a story of suddenly lost innocence, and the conflict between desire for political involvement, being a teenager, and wanting to “get on with life.” It is also a drama about unrequited love and death against the backdrop of a crucial time of conflict and change in American history. The Kent State shootings helped to turn the tide of public opinion against the Vietnam War, and unalterably changed the lives of a whole generation of Americans—including Jonathan’s life.
