The Lineup: Playwriting Festival 2014
By Sunny Roy
February 21st & 22nd
This year’s student produced playwriting festival features short plays that range from dramatic transformations to hilarious skits. The five plays this year, completely written, directed, and acted by students, showcase HB talent as well as that of boys from other schools. In previous years, the playwriting festival has been a hit, and this year can be expected to be no different. A whole list of actors, directors, and writers are included below. Please come out to support these incredible shows! (Also, Parsons is in one of the plays which is enough of an incentive to come.)
