Benedict College Theatre Ensemble
Will Present Its Fall Theatrical Production of
Living in a Dying World
November 11-14

Columbia, SC -- October 27, 2014 -- The Benedict College Fine Arts Department and The Theatre Ensemble's Works-In-Progress will present its fall stage production of Living in a Dying World on November 11, 12, 13, and 14, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. The performance will be held in the Henry Ponder Fine Arts/Humanities Center.

Written by Mr. Charles David Brooks, III,Benedict College Professor of Theater, in collaboration with theater students Carrington Hardin, Ty' Berria Clatt, Cassius Moore, Derek Darby, Keneshia Gillard, Tykeisha Davenport, Michal Ryan, Thiyra Baker, Elijah Nixon, Jessica Cannady, and Glendon Ruff, the stage play energetically explores issues facing today's youth, their concerns, and their fears.

The Theatre Ensemble conceived this production as an answer to on-going class discussions about current events that affect them in their daily lives. The play captures today's reality in voice and movement to scenes such as They Don't Really Care about Us. The play extracts from protesting with Hands Up! Don't Shoot! to Stop The Violence! Child Abuse! Vote! and Peace! Ironically, the main stage setting takes place within a church.

The play is directed by Mr. Brooks, the author of Our Lives Our Voices Our Music, a book of theatrical plays. Admission is free and open to the public, however donations are welcome.

For more information, please contact Mr. Charles David Brooks, III at 803-705-4358 or email brooksc@benedict.edu.
