Chatroom: A Play by Enda Walsh

The Drama Department proudly presents Chatroom a play by Enda Walsh. In Chatroom six teenage characters communicate only via the Internet. Conversations range in subject from Britney Spears to Willy Wonka to – suicide: Jim is depressed and talks of ending his life and Eva and William decide to do their utmost to persuade him to carry out his threat. From this chilling premise is forged a funny, compelling and uplifting play that tackles the issues of teenage life head-on and with great understanding.

Chatroom would have been the Sears Festival entry for ESA, if not the political tumult in public schools. The students, under the shared direction of Andree Schuller and Julie King, have persevered, despite many challenges, and will proudly present this work on Thursday, March 28th at 4pm and 7pm in the Mini Theatre. The play is approximately 50 minutes in length. Admission is free.
