The Theater Division in the School of Dance, Film and Theater is proud to present the second production of the 2018–2019 season, 365 Days/365 Plays, by Suzan-Lori Parks, directed by Visiting Assistant Professor, Daniel C. Dennis and Assistant Professor, Rebecca VerNooy and presented in the Elizabeth Evans Baker Theater, October 25–27 and October 30–November 3 at 8 p.m.

Suzan-Lori Parks got the idea to write a play every day for a year. In her words, “It would be about being present and being committed to the artistic process every single day, regardless of the weather. It became a daily meditation, a daily prayer celebrating the rich strange process of a writing life.” We present a selection of playlets chosen from this extraordinary collection.

Daniel C. Dennis, Visiting Assistant Professor and Rebecca VerNooy, Assistant Professor both faculty in the Division of Theater, direct a student cast: Summer Finley, Aidan Tracy, Nate Perez, Stephanie Carrillo, Nick Slaughter, Morgan Austin, Philip Matthews, Manda Neal, DeVanté Malone, Janai Lashon, Connor Daugherty, Erik Armstong, Chiara Ridpath and Camila Benencia Courreges.

Performances: November 25–27 and October 30–November 3, at 8 p.m., in The Elizabeth Evans Baker Theater located in Kantner Hall, with a talkback following the performance on Friday, November 2.
