'[sic],' a Comedic Look at Modern Manhattanites, Staged at Washington College

Chestertown, MD, September 21, 2007 — The Washington College Department of Drama will present a faculty-directed production of "[sic]," a comedy by Melissa James Gibson, at Norman James Theatre on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, September 27 to 29, at 8 p.m.

Co-directed by Professors Polly Sommerfeld and Jason Rubin, "[sic]" is a contemporary comedy of manners about three young adults who are neighbors in a Manhattan apartment building. The two men and a woman have reached an impasse in their careers. The play investigates the vicissitudes of their relationships with one another as they navigate through the limbo of lives not fulfilled.

Playing the three friends are students Mary Lide and Jaques de Silva and Washington College graduate Harry Wright. Playing multiple other roles are students Mike Golze and Maggie Kobik.

Filled with fanciful, humorous, brittle and brutal exchanges, "[sic]" premiered off-Broadway in 2001; before then, Washington College Assistant Professor of Drama Michele Volansky worked on the play at the Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago.

Admission to "[sic]" is $3 for students and $5 for adults. For reservations and more information, call 410-778-7835, or e-mail
