A powerful pair of plays

The casts of Weatherford College’s productions of two one-act plays pose with their director, Nancy McVean, center, in the photos included.

The plays, "A Healing of War" and "New York," focus on personal experiences of two horrific events, the death of a soldier in Iraq and his family’s grief and the effect on a group of survivors from the events of Sept. 11, 2001.

"Both are extremely personal and real, and the characters come alive in their raw emotions," said McVean. "But even in the portrayals of grief, guilt, and heartache, there are expressions of hope and understanding of the events. No one will leave the theatre unaffected themselves."

The plays are scheduled Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the Alkek Fine Arts Center on WC’s Weatherford campus, 225 College Park. Admission is free. For more information, contact McVean at 817-598-6307 or
