Crime, Comedy Combine as Lonergan's 'Lobby Hero' Staged at Washington College

Chestertown, MD — The Washington College Department of Drama will present Kenneth Lonergan's "Lobby Hero" in Norman James Theatre on Friday and Saturday, November 2 and 3, at 8 p.m.

A senior thesis directed by Liz Flair, "Lobby Hero" is the story of young, hapless security guard Jeff (played by sophomore Travis Brown) and his growing ties to a murder investigation. The comedy has Jeff's supervisor William (played by senior Ben Kozlowski) testifying against his problematic brother, while an attractive new rookie cop (played by sophomore Annabelle Shore) is put on the stand against her seasoned partner Bill (played by Ben Majors).

Jeff's big mouth manages to mire him deeper in the investigation until all four characters are brought together realizing how connected they really are. Truth quickly becomes elusive with personal and social responsibilities being placed into question. Loyalties are strained and the cost of justice is unsure as the audience is left to wonder what will happen next.

Admission to "Lobby Hero" is free, but seating is limited and reservations are required; call 410/778-7835 or e-mail
