The Freshman Honors Program with support from the Theatre Arts Department presents [SIC], a play written by Melissa James Gibson. Directed by Theatre Arts Professor Macelle Mahala.

"In adjacent apartments that resemble nothing so much as broom closets with windows, the three young, ambitious neighbors of Melissa James Gibson's [sic] come together to discuss, flirt, argue, share their dreams, and plan their futures with unequal degrees of deep hopefulness and abject despair, all the while pushing the limits of their friendship to the max and demonstrating that language can be both an instrument of intimacy and a weapon of defense.

Theo is a composer trying to create a heroic theme for an amusement park ride called the Thrill-o-Rama.

Babette is a writer who is trying to finish--or even start--a book theorizing that temper tantrums are the major motivating force behind historical events. 

Frank is a would-be auctioneer, preparing for his future career by constantly practicing such tongue twisters as "Sally sought some seeds to sow but sadly soon it snowed."

By exploring these questing lives in language that alternates between exhilarating structural inventiveness and loony comedy, poignant soul-searching and incisive analysis of the life that may actually exist beyond one's four walls, Gibson has created a unique play that is as witty and wise as it is stylistically groundbreaking and unexpected."
