The Fairmont State University School of Fine Arts and Masquers theatre group will present “Poof! Plus: An Evening of One-Act Plays” as the first show of the 2013-2014 season.
“Poof! Plus” combines four separate shows in an innovative way to create a message of hope and opportunity. The four one-acts range from comedic and absurd to harrowing and heart-wrenching: “Give Me Shelter” by Wendy Weiner, “Dancing With a Devil” by Brooke Berman, “Forced Out” by Jean Abbott and “Poof!” by Lynn Nottage. Each of these plays touches on some of the issues faced by women, and though all of the plays were written more than a decade ago, these issues are still relevant in today’s society.
“Poof! Plus: An Evening of One-Act Plays” opens at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27 in Wallman Hall Theatre. Other performances are planned for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28; 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29; and 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 3- 5. Tickets can be ordered online at www.fairmontstate.edu/tickets or by calling the Box Office at (304) 367-4240.
