The Book of Everything

The 9th Grade Advanced Class presents The Book of Everything about Thomas who is nine and has started writing a book. His father says all important books are about God. Even so, Thomas writes down all the interesting things he sees that other people seem to ignore: tropical fish in the canal, a deluge of frogs, the Son of God popping in for a chat... He also writes down his greatest determination: When I grow up, I'm going to be happy. Featuring Jesus, the angels, the Bottombiter, the startling Mrs Van Amersfoort and a beautiful girl with a leather leg, this is a totally magical story about a child learning to act when faced with fear and wrong.

The Insanity of Mary Girard

Junior Varsity actors present The Insanity of Mary Girard, the real-life story of a Philadelphia woman who spent the last 25 years of her life in a mental institution. In 1790, Mary Girard is committed to an asylum. After she became pregnant by another man, her husband had her declared legally insane. Now, she sits in a chair as the "furies" dance around and impersonate people from her past.

Distracted

Varsity actors present Distracted, a play about two parents exploring a variety of treatments for their son recently diagnosed with ADHD. Although the story covers weighty topics ranging from anxiety and depression to self harm and bipolar, the play features "distracted" characters who break character and talk with the audience at times — making it both theatrical and comic
