Armory Square Playhouse and SU drama at Jazz Central

Armory Square playhouse will present the fifth annual full production of two new short plays selected from the SU Drama Department's New Playwrights Festival of Student Plays.

Where: Jazz Central located at 441 E. Washington St.

When: Sunday, March 28, at 1 p.m.

Admission: $7 regular; $5 for seniors and students.

THE PLAYS: An Aphorism on Love, written by Sammi Lappin, actually means two things: it means a truth about love and it is an informal definition of the Kama Sutra. This short play is about sex. Sex in terms of itself, in terms of friendship and lastly, in terms of love. It is an examination of four different people and their own personal aphorisms on these subjects, and a look at what happens when those aphorisms collide with each other. The play, directed by Emily Batsford, features Eric Meyers, Aisling Halpin, Mike Lowes, and Katie Campbell.

The Death of Superboy, written by David-Julian Melendez is about two young men each living in light of death. One is living with the knowledge that his friend is dying and that others around him may not be long for this world either. The other is living with the knowledge that he himself has little time left. The play is an exploration of how an enduring friendship stands in the face of that knowledge and how two young men deal with those circumstances. The cast includes Matt Smith, Phil Blechman, and Peter Hourihan. Emily Rice directs.

The plays are presentations of works in progress and talkback sessions with the playwrights will follow each performance.
