West Hartford’s Conard High School Drama Department will present a spring play with performances May 5 through May 7.
Conard Drama returns to the blackbox theater for the first production since 2020, a two-act spring play that opens May 5.
Conard seniors Elijah Rivera and Declan Smith will direct “Imber,” as the opening act of the spring play.
It’s said before you die, your entire life flashes before your eyes. In this play, Imber sits peacefully on death’s doorstep, recalling the most important pieces. Through memories of friendship, heartbreak, celebration, and loss, Imber tells the story of life.
Act 2 will feature “Eurydice,” by Sarah Ruhl, directed by Hunter Parker.
This play reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice not through Orpheus’s infamous pilgrimage to retrieve his bride, but through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love. The play is a fresh look at a timeless love story.
“Imber” runs roughly 30 minutes and “Eurydice” is an 80-minute production, with the total run time with intermission of about two hours.
Tickets are $5 for students, $10 for adults and are available online or at the door while they last. Seating is limited, so we encourage you to arrive early to pick your seats!
