Olivia Harper Ensemble on the Rocks Commentary

Ensemble on the Rocks was a gathering of short skits that students in a theatre class developed throughout the semester. It was refreshing to see such alternative student creativity. All of the skits focused on abstract ideas and very few characters had actual names. A turtle gets turned on its back.  A teenager feels the loss of their first love. Greed leads to downfall. A couch salesman earns a free company vacation. A railroad worker gets a spike driven through his head and dies twelve years later. So many stories were told in fifty minutes inside the Barber Theatre. Rich perspectives were portrayed in mere minutes.
