ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A new summer tradition is about to begin for Central New Mexico Community College (CNM).
Friday, July 22 will be opening day for CNM’s first student directed plays, “The Liabilities,” and “Low Moon.” These one act plays are the first in a new program offered at the college.
Director, Steven Blacksmith, and writer, Caroline Graham, joined KRQE’s This Morning team to talk about their plays. Watch above.
“The Liabilities” is about a young man named William who dies and goes to heaven, or rather, a heavenly waiting room. Before being granted access to heaven, he must wait in the equivalent of a celestial DMV while case workers determine if he’s going to be too much of a liability for them to handle.
“Low Moon” is a touching drama by playwright Caroline Graham. In this play, a young woman grows up under the harsh restrictions her family imposes on her. She is torn between possibilities of independence and duty.
Opening day is Friday, July 22 and runs through Sunday, July 24. Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinee at 2 p.m.
