Play Chosen for National Conference

A play by HSU Theatre, Film and Dance professor Margaret Thomas Kelso has been selected in a national competition by the Association for Theatre and Higher Education (ATHE), and will be presented in August at the organization’s annual conference in Los Angeles.

The ten minute play, Outside Inside, concerns families of prisoners.

Margaret Kelso’s plays produced at HSU were the full lengths Relative Captivity in 2007 and The Sex in Question, as well as the one act plays, Medical Court and Bea. The children’s musical she co-wrote, The Big Bad Wolf and the Endangered Forest, was produced by the Portland Opera in Portland, Oregon. Several of her short plays were performed at Plays in Progress in Eureka.

The 24th annual ATHE conference will be held August 3 through 6 in Los Angeles.
