Marfa Live Arts presents the 8th Annual Marfa High School One-Act Plays, in collaboration with Marfa ISD, at the Crowley Theater Wednesday, May 1, at 7pm (doors at 6:30pm). This electrifying, standing room only night of theater is the culminating event to our weeklong Playwriting Workshops with the Marfa High School held in April. We will present four award-winning student one-act plays written by students with our 2019 playwright-in-residence Mónica Sánchez. This year 74 students wrote plays!
The 2019 winning playwrights are:
9th grade: Uriel Torres — Stuck in Multiverse
10th grade: Andrea Torres — Twin Size Mattress
11th grade: Ruben D. Watts-Ortiz — Reality
12th grade: Georgina Brugette — They Are Here
Community Actors include: Yoseff Ben-Yehuda, Crystal Catano, Belen Garcia, Jared Menane, Mary Mois, Arthur Ruiz, Tyler Spurgin, Jackson Wisdorf, and members of the Dresden Collective: Hope Lafferty, Jonathan “JB” Fields, Alyssa Longoria, Gabrielle Rule, Callie Joe Jones, Michael B. Amerson, and David DeLaO.
The winning student artist who made this year’s poster artwork is Angelica Quiñonez, 11th grade.
“All of the plays this year are exceptional. The students went above and beyond in honing and crafting rich narrative, complex subtext, descriptive settings and, most importantly, character transformation.” Marfa Live Arts director Jennie Hamilton shares. “We are incredibly proud of these students. The quality of their work speaks to this workshop being taught annually. Student’s writing voices have really matured and developed. They are able to write a play! It’s a big accomplishment for anyone and these kids feel really good about having done it.”
