Chestertown, MD, February 28, 2007 — Washington College's Drama Department will present "According to Goldman," a senior thesis directed by Alaina Anderson, stage-managed by Tim Helmer, and written by Bruce Graham, in the College's Norman James Theatre on Friday and Saturday, March 2 and 3 at 8 p.m.
A film buff's delight, "According to Goldman" centers on ex-Hollywood hotshot Gavin Miller, who currently works as a professor of film. Frustrated by students whose list of great movies includes "The Matrix" and "Legally Blonde," Gavin recognizes the brilliance in one pupil—Jeremiah Collins. In cinematic style, the scenes seamlessly trace the lives of Jeremiah, Gavin, and Gavin's wife, Melanie, and capture the bittersweet truths of human connection.
"I fell in love with this play for what it says about life," notes Director Alaina Anderson. "We let society change us until we are virtually unrecognizable to those we know and love."
"According to Goldman" stars junior Phil Doccolo, senior Greg Schaefer, and sophomore Aileen Brenner. Admission is free, but reservations are required. For show information, call 410-778-7835 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
