AN ORIGINAL ONE-ACT PLAY, REPENT HARLEQUIN, DIRECTED BY A BARD STUDENT, WILL BE PERFORMED ON FEBRUARY 28 AND MARCH 1 AT BARD'S AVERY ARTS CENTER Play features a cast composed of seven Red Hook High School students and a Bard student
ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y.—Jill Sunderland, a Bard senior, is directing her one-act play, Repent Harlequin, which features performances by seven Red Hook High School students and one Bard student. This production, free and open to the public, will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, February 28, and Saturday, March 1, in the theater studio of the Avery Arts Center.
Sunderland based the play on a short story by Harlan Ellison. The story takes place in a somewhat futuristic society, which is obsessed with and dependent on time, and centers around the antics of the Harlequin, who pulls small pranks in the hopes of giving people a little freedom from the oppression of the Tictockman, who oversees the society.
The cast includes Kim Cordier, Kate Jetto, Rachel Long, Sophia Miele, Virginia Prenot, Matt Riso, and Alyse Tompkins, all Red Hook High School students, and Eddie Bennett, a student at Bard.
