At times hilarious and at others heartbreaking, this stirring musical chronicles the five year trajectory of a relationship. The catch is that these characters move across time in opposite trajectories. Between the gorgeous score and striking lyrics, audiences will fall in love with these flawed and delightful characters.

Elemeno Pea

By Molly Smith Metzler
(A Contemporary Comedy of Manners….or lack thereof)
Directed by Diana Howell 
Student Co-Produced: Amanda Michaud

Thursday, November 14 through Saturday, November 16
See below about discussion following Saturday's performance.
7:30 p.m.
Sunday, November 17
2:00 p.m.
All performances in
Gertrude C. Ford Academic Complex, Room 215.

Comedy erupts and chaos disrupts as wealthy boss Michaela abruptly derails Simone and Devon's relaxing sisters' weekend on Martha's Vineyard. Class lines blur as the scotch is poured, secrets are revealed, enemies are exposed and unexpected alliances are formed - until everyone eventually gets a good lesson about living in glass houses.

Strong language; about class and elitism.

Discussion of Social Justice to follow Saturday Night Performance of Elemeno Pea
After the Saturday performance of Elemeno Pea, a panel of faculty members from different disciplines will start a discussion by commenting briefly on the questions of social justice raised by the play. Elemeno Pea raises questions of social class, gender roles, and “race” or ethnicity in our culture, and this panel hopes to raise some stimulating discussion among members of audience, cast, and crew on these questions. Come see the play on Saturday evening and take part in this discussion of social justice in our culture today.
