Incendiary Agents
Dec 1 @ 8:00 pm

“Incendiary Agents” is one of three plays selected as winners of the Morgan Opera House’s seventh Gloria Ann Barnell Peter Playwright Competition. Set in the 1960s, against the backdrop of anti-establishment rebellion, Jim Crow and the Viet Nam war, this original play focuses on a small group of idealists, including two members of the clergy, who determine to protest the war by breaking into a federal building to destroy draft records.  The consequences of the “simple” burglary are greater than anything they might have imagined.  Jack Karp’s work explores the questions,  “What impels people to march and plot and be willing to be arrested for their beliefs.  How do they draw the line between what they’re willing to protest and what they’re not?”  Directed by Siouxsie Easter, Associate Professor of Theatre at Wells.

We Will Not Be Silent
Aug 16 @ 8:00 pm

Individuals are sometimes willing to risk everything for a cause in which they believe.  But how far is one willing to go to risk the lives of friends and family?  We Will Not Be Silent explores this dilemma as it presents the intense confrontation between 21-year-old Sophie Scholl, a university student activist who led the only major act of civil resistance to the Nazi during WW II, and Kurt Grunwald, her interrogator.  Both wield strength; one wields power. Based on the true events which occurred in Munich, Germany in 1943.

The cast includes Jim Byrne as Kurt Grunwald, Mallory Cleere as Sophie Scholl, and Luke Lauchle as Hans Scholl. Patti Goebel is the set and lighting designer. Production assistant is Liz Sherman.

We Will Not Be Silent is the 13th original play to be performed at the Morgan Opera House as a winner of the Gloria Ann Barnell Peter Playwright Competition.  Written by David Meyers and directed by Siouxsie Easter, Professor of Theatre at Wells College.

David Meyers is an actor and playwright based in Los Angeles and New York. As a writer, his plays have been produced and read off-Broadway, and at regional theaters across the country. He has been published by Applause, Smith and Kraus, and more. As an actor, he has appeared on TV, film, and national commercials. www.DavidActs.com  @DaveActs
