Abstract

The students of WOU’s Theatre Department are proud to present Half a Block From Home, a new devised work. Created from the ground up over the course of the academic year, the play examines social justices issues in Oregon and further afield. Taking the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage as the starting point, the play uses poetry, monologues, interviews, and scenes to address issues of gender, race, and gay rights. With a sense of humor, and a dose of satire, we invite you to join us for a night of storytelling about issues that affect us all.

Student Cast: Amanda Norman, Amanda Konstantin, Clare McKay, Jill Ekins, Morgan Josef-Weiner, Kimberly Wilson, Tia Laulusa, Erin Cunningham, Margaret Sherbourne, Declan Hertel, Richard Borland, Ken Tang, and Trevor Jackson

Student Design and Technical Staff: Danielle Potter – Sound Design, Chloe Josef-Weiner – Projections Design, Jenessa Raabe – Lighting Design, Joceline Wynn – Lighting Design, Kelsi Hennig – Stage Manager, Matt Whitesell – Assistant Stage Manager, Kelly Gray – Poster Design
