Student playwrights, directors, and actors presented their original one-act productions during the IDEA Theater Festival, April 11 and 12, in the Norris Ely Orchard Theater.
Each performance was required to meet certain parameters and focus either literally or figuratively on the festival theme of "Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access."
According to the guidelines, each play was approximately 10 minutes in length and incorporate a collective set piece as well as an individual prop, which was made in the Pearse Hub for Innovation by each ensemble. Additionally, all action took place entirely within the 8-foot-by-6-foot theatrical frame on stage. Each play began with the line, "I think you misunderstood," and ended with, "I mean, what's the worst thing that could happen?"
