Cloak & Dagger, Written by Senior Brian Cornelius, Premieres on the WC Stage, November 4 and 5

Chestertown, MD, October 26, 2005 — Washington College's Drama Department presents "Cloak & Dagger," a senior playwriting thesis by Brian C. Cornelius and directed by Carrie Chapter, Friday and Saturday, November 4 and 5, at 8 p.m. in the College's Tawes Theatre.

Marking Cornelius' playwriting debut, "Cloak & Dagger" focuses on a young, struggling writer who unwittingly falls into a web of espionage. As the story unravels, he becomes at odds with the truth in the outside world and within himself. According to Cornelius, "Initially, I saw Cloak & Dagger as a cinematic story but, as I developed it for the stage, it allowed me to flesh out the characters and really explore them."

Impressed by Cornelius' vision and outcome, director Carrie Chapter notes, "The whole experience of putting this play together has been very fresh and intriguing. It's thrilling to be a part of this premiere play."

No reservations are required and the public is invited to attend this free performance. For show information, call 410-778-7835 or e-mail
