Four of the eight 10-minute plays selected for production from 46 entries in Theatre Odyssey’s eighth annual student competition were written by SSES students. Chosen were works by senior Kassandra Haakman (The Jeffrey Effect), sophomore Mia Mariano (Past Life), freshman Sarah MacPhail (A Whole Lot of Nothing), and sophomore Maxine Mandt (The Clock). Performances will be held on Jan. 25 and 26 at the Jane B. Cook Theatre in the Asolo/FSU Center for the Performing Arts. Author of the best play receives a $1,000 cash scholarship; runner-up receives $500; authors of other finalist plays receive $100. Works authored by Saint Stephen’s students have taken the top prize in five of the previous seven years of the competition.
