Tonight’s clip is a cool promo, made by Austin Susman, for the Contemporary Youth Arts Company production, “A Service For Jeremy Wong.” A shorter version of this will appear tomorrow in Radio Free Charleston’s next episode.
The play, written by Dan Kehde, addresses the aftermath of a fatal gay-bashing incident of a high school student. The national media descends as the kids left behind have to deal with their own issues of tolerance, grief and their developing moral sense of what’s right and wrong.
“A Service For Jeremy Wong” opens Thursday, March 10 at 8 PM at the WVSU Capitol Center Theater, 123 Summers Street. Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for students. Additional performances are March 11 and 12, and March 17-19, all at 8 PM. Come out and see the area’s most talented young performers take on a meaty, serious issue.
