Fall Play: Crush by Stephen Gregg

Mon, 10/24/2016 - 9:42am

Atholton High School's award-winning theatre department will present the hilarious and touching new play Crush by Stephen Gregg, for two weekends this November.  Show times are Saturday, Nov. 5 at 7:00 PM and Sunday, Nov. 6 at 3:00 PM, and then Friday and Saturday, Nov. 11-12 at 7:00 PM.

Crush is an alien invasion romantic comedy that is also a 21st century response to Thornton Wilder's classic Our Town. Crush is a mash-up: funny, heartbreaking and full of unforgettable characters. Crush is set in a small town in the California desert falling on hard times, features a high school theatre group staging Our Town, love in many flavors, and an alien invasion by a lead alien who has six bodies, five of which are invisible to almost everyone. But the one teen who can see the alien is also the one who had a nervous breakdown when his mother disappeared--so who’s going to believe him about the aliens? Find out!
