The Marie Murphy Spring Play will take place on Friday, April 25 @ 7:30 pm and again on Saturday, April 26 @ 7:30 pm. Admission is free and features a double feature!
Our first play is Homework Eats Dog by Alan Haehnel, where a sadistic science teacher waits in eager anticipation of the excuses his students deliver on why they need an extension on their science projects. Will any student succeed in delivering an excuse that results in an extension? Come and find out!
The second play of the evening is reflective of pop culture’s infatuation with zombies. 10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse by Don Zolidis provides a hilarious plethora of strategies to aid you in avoiding the clutches of the walking dead!
