“Spring Shorts” plays showcase fun, creative theatre Friday, Apr 15 2022 

By Tate Luckey —

This weekend marks the second and final run of the Playhouse Theatre’s “Spring Shorts,” a collection of seven 10-15 minute plays written by university students. Directed by Geoffrey Nelson, many of the plays deal with topics ranging from aging parents to self-acceptance to Black Mirror-esque takes on the dangers of technology.

Act 1 of the “Spring Shorts” showing

The show is broken into two acts, with a brief intermission. I particularly enjoyed the lighted humor and fourth wall break of Ross Just’s murder mystery “Curtain Call.” Flora Schildnecht’s “The Violin Lesson” is a powerful take on how degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia can sneak up on aging parents, resulting in family conflict. Katie Swain’s “The Proposal” starts act two off with a bait and switch in what a relationship proposal can truly mean.

Act 2 of the “Spring Shorts” showing
