“SCSU Playwrights: Time to Change”
An Honors College Thesis by Kevin Redline
Directed by Kevin Redline
SCSU Playwrights: Time to Change is based off of different character traits, actions, settings and themes creatively crowdsourced from students here at Southern. Kicked out of his house at the age of 14 because of his sexuality, Theo grows up to use a government time machine to travel back to 2018 and confronts his bartender grandfather, Ted, about the homophobic mindset he has passed on. The show is an exploration of how our families make us who we are – for better or worse.
Based on a short story by Shirley Jackson
Adapted for the stage by Brainerd Duffield
Directed by Maeve Cunningham
The Lottery is about a small town, gathering to celebrate a traditional event. While everything seems normal about the Lottery, darker truths are revealed as the show builds to a climatic end
Written and Directed by Molly Flanagan
A modern-day story set in a diner over the course of three days. A mix of characters are brought together in this setting (a junkie teenager, her athletic friend, a disgruntled waitress and an old hermit); their hum-drum conversations play against a TV playing the news (which they try to ignore), leading up to a stressful conflict where characters’ problems with addiction come to a head.

By Celeste Raspanti
Directed by Brenna Ross
Based on real writing, poetry, and artwork discovered after the liberation of the Terezin ghetto, I Never Saw Another Butterfly by Celeste Raspanti tells the story of the Jewish children who were imprisoned there during the Holocaust. The story centers around Raja, one of the few children to survive the war and return to Prague after Terezin was liberated, as well as her best friend and beloved teacher.
