PULLMAN — The 10th annual STAGE One production at WSU will open 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2 in Daggy Hall’s Wadleigh Theater with four one-act plays written, directed and produced by students and presented in conjunction with the WSU theatre program.

Additional 7:30 p.m. performances will take place Oct. 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11.  

STAGE One opens with recent WSU graduate Lonnie Stuart’s play “Few and Far Between,” where the death of a hit man is overshadowed by a comedic lover’s spat.

“Something Borrowed, Something Blue,” written by psychology major Aubry Whitfield, follows with a wild story of family and friendship that takes place as the youngest relative prepares to walk down the aisle.

In English major Mike Coletta’s play “Behind Closed Doors,” boundaries are tested through the relationship of a young teacher and his student as unsettling accusations are made against a well-respected professor.

The final play, “Commitments,” by theatre major Dana Bensel, exemplifies sisterhood as two women bond over a life-changing experience and reaffirm their love for each other.

Play admission is $10 for adults, $7.50 for seniors and $5 for WSU students with ID. WSU graduate and professional students and their partners can attend free of charge with valid student ID. WSU theatre is sponsored by the Visual, Performing and Literary Arts Committee at WSU and the Graduate and Professional Student Association.

The theatre box office in Daggy Hall is open 2–5:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday during play weeks and at 6:30 p.m. on performance evenings. For reservations and more information, call 509-335-7236 or e-mail reservations@wsu.edu.
