'Juvenilia' Staged at Washington College

Chestertown, MD — The Washington College Department of Drama will present Wendy McLeod's "Juvenilia" in Middle Hall Basement on Friday and Saturday, April 25-26, at 8 p.m.

"Juvenilia" is an insightful skewering of the manners, morals, pretensions and hidden fears of modern-day college students. Bored of frat parties and second-run movies, a pair of dorm friends challenge each other to engineer a salacious encounter with the virtuous co-ed residing next door. Once their cool, ironic facades begin to slip, however, things don't go quite as planned.

The play premiered off-Broadway in 2003, earning a glowing review from Variety: "With the possible exception of politicians, college students are the most self-regarding creatures on earth. Wendy MacLeod nails that narcissism with a wry vengeance in this comic drama...."

The upcoming Washington College production of "Juvenilia," directed by Senior Bobby Bangert, features James Maguire, Alec Rosa, Maggie Farrell and Allison Valliant.

Admission to "Juvenilia" is free, but reservations are required; call 410/778-7835 or e-mail
