DR3 Play: Mad Forest

Mad Forest

By Caryl Churchill 
Directed by Ashley Malafronte 
Stage Managed by Fiona Grand

Show Dates: Nov 1-4 @7pm; Nov 3 @ 4pm & 7pm
PPAS Black Box

Synopsis: This timely drama resulted from a trip to Romania. Developed with students from London’s Central School of Drama, this is an incisive portrait of a society in turmoil that focuses on two families to reveal what life is like under a totalitarian regime and what results when the regime collapses. The play’s brief scenes are almost cinematic in their presentation of events as seen by ordinary people trying to live in peace.

Clothing Thrift Drive

A message from Carly Alvo and the Climate Conscious Club at PPAS.

A clothing thrift drive has been organized for November 15th. The thrift drive is free. No money will be involved. It is a simple way to promote sustainability and encourage people to clean out their closets of clothing they no longer wear.

Let’s use this thrift opportunity to reduce, reuse, recycle, and keep it out of landfills.

Clothing donations of all sizes and styles are encouraged.
