If the Eye Offends, Pluck it Out
For our Chamber Theatre class, we exhumed Mary Higgins Clark’s ALL AROUND THE TOWN and transformed it into a script. We performed it last Monday in AS101 at 7PM. The pictures follow with some labels to guide you. ENJOY!
LAURIE (Denise) was an ordinary college student. Didn’t her collegiate concerns made her the subject of the novel? A murderer, that is.
Apparently, someone who cannot control her self, Laurie suffers from multiple personality disorder. People accused her of killing their heartthrob professor (Sir Nemenzo, yes, of STS!!!) who as close to Laurie and the same time, to Leona, an alter ego.
Beautiful and dangerous (like Serena! Lol), LEONA (Jema) waves her sultry spirits to the end. She proclaims her self as a tramp. But she does not drown in shame.
KATE (Lara) acts as the bossy protector of Laurie. She acts like a know-it-all but she never actually does know a lot.
The wimpy DEBBIE (Steph) cries a lot. She has been molested as a child by a gyspsy-turned-televangelist. The horror of the past lies in her cries.
LEE (Hazel) is the real Protector. This little boy knows a bountiful; he’s smart and courageous despite his futility.
Laurie submits her self to a psychiatric session frequently to make things clear for her.
Meanwhile, the insensitive JUSTIN (Barry) tries to catch up. Being wealthy and snobby could only do so much to his patient’s great trust.
And there’s GREGG (Geoff), the only one who can help Laurie be HER SELF and not be somebody else. If you know what I mean =p.
And who could ever forget BIC (Rex)? He abducted Laurie when he was little and he was sexually obsessed with her. His mighty sociopath tendencies moved him to find Laurie as a grown-up and make her suffer.
Thank you to those who watched. And congratulations to all of us. Ma’am was highly awed by our performance as well as the other group’s PARA KAY B. Till our next production! =)
And oh, my close friend DANICA is in a commercial lately. Wala lang. Haha. Here she is as PAM. Pam what again? Haha.
