The Bob Jones Theatre Department, also known as the Patriot Players, will host their annual Drama Fest this Thursday, November 2nd. Individual events, such as monologues, musical theatre, and pantomimes, start at 6:30 pm. The one-act, “The Recovery Act,” written by Dwayne Craft and student directed by Gabriela Garcia and Makynzie Smith, will start after the individual events. 

Zachary Johnson, a Patriot Player, described the show as, “[a] war against love and fear: that’s the question that we ask our audience in this show. How do you recover from a disaster? You can pick two roads. This show is about that decision. It shows the dangers of a divided society [and] how opinions and distrust can polarize a population and leave everybody unhappy in the end.”

Craft’s previous shows, “Standard Deviation” and “A Resonant Frequency,” were both loosely based on the lives of Ada Lovelace and Nikola Tesla respectively. However, Thalia Doss, who plays Mae Diernan, said, “This show is different because instead of taking a purely historical or fictional route, we combined the two to create this world that may have become a reality if history had turned out differently. Imagine if the US was almost defeated in WWII and was left in ruins.”

However, the students involved with the one-act are not the only ones performing. Love Lundy, who will be performing a dramatic duet, said, “people in beginning, intermediate, and advanced drama don’t really get the recognition that Advanced Production [does], and Drama Fest is an opportunity for them to showcase their talents.”

Tickets are $5 and will be sold at the door.
