“Within the Shadows”
by Scott Shallenbarger
Directed by Graduating Senior Cora Parker ’22
Anguished secrets and buried jealousies erupt as two close friends work to define their friendship without the man who tied them together.
Steven and Sandra, exceptionally close friends who spent four wonderful years in college together, are seeing one another for the first time in a year. Sean, Steven’s closest friend and Sandra’s fiancé, has taken his life while Steven was in Europe. The play begins with an explosion of comedy as the two celebrate their reunion. But slowly and inevitably, it spirals into deep emotional truths as the two come to terms with their own feelings of guilt and non-understanding of their personal tragedy. Anguished secrets from the past and buried jealousies erupt as the two work to define their friendship without the man who tied them together. A dynamic play which explores the destructive consequences of suppressing emotional truth.
