Polaroid Stories

Polaroid Stories
Performance and Reception

September 19, 7:30 p.m.
Penn State Downtown Theatre
(Allen Street below Panera)

The Paterno Fellows Program has reserved the Downtown Theatre for this performance!

About the Show: Polaroid Stories challenges the audience with a series of vignettes and loosely connected visceral subplots about homeless youth. Inspired by Ovid’s Metamorphoses, the play uses Greek mythology to reveal the violence, addiction, relationships, and poor choices of its characters. Ultimately, the audience feels in part responsible for the tragic nature of the fate of the characters as we ignore the ugly side of surviving homelessness.

Polaroid Stories is an “Off-Centre” event, part of Penn State School of Theatre’s 2018-19 season. Director Erik Raymond Johnson will join us on September 19 for Lunch with Honors.

All are invited to stay for a reception with cast and crew in the Theatre lobby following the performance.
