One Play, Two Plays, And Then Some More


‘Anne Then Some’, written by Allison Fradkin and directed by junior Rowan Collins, will be showing in the Studio Theatre in the Ford Center for Fine Arts this weekend. 

Junior Cheshire Aikka and freshman Kyra Kellogg act in the ‘Anne of Green Gables-inspired play. The play is free and open to the public. It shows on Friday, October 14th and Saturday, October 15th at 7:30PM. Collins found the script on the New Play Exchange website, the largest digital library of scripts by living writers.

‘Anne Then Some’ will be the second show in Studio Theatre this term. The series will continue with ‘Laundromat’ and ‘The Language Archive’ showing later this fall.

Fradkin’s description of the play reads, “You are raspberry cordially invited to Prince Edward Island, home of carrot-top-of-the-line literary heroine Anne Shirley and her bosom friend Diana Barry. These kindred spirits have some contemporary company: Vernie and Cori, teenage visitors who meet for the first time while having a field day at Field Day at Green Gables Heritage Place. Is it love at first “site”? Anne and Diana solemnly swear their faithfulness to one another within minutes of meeting. Will Vernie and Cori duplicate their devotion?”
