Kalamazoo College visiting faculty member and guest artist Bianca Washington says the play Student Body has caused her to recall some experiences from her past, and she says it may do the same for the audience. Washington is directing the play, which examines how 10 college students react to the discovery of a video that includes evidence of a sexual assault. It will be staged at the Festival Playhouse of Kalamazoo College Thursday February 21st through Sunday February 24th.
The play written by Frank Winters, takes place in one long scene. K-College freshman Grace Erway, who plays Liz, says with little off-stage time the actors have to be engaged. Psychology Major Jared Pittman, who plays Malcom, says the audience will also have be on their toes. He says the interactive nature of the play means the audience is trying to figure out what to do along with the characters.
