Original Play by Mayde Creek Senior Selected by Alley Theatre

Katie Morrison, a senior at Mayde Creek High School, has been selected to have her play Pamoja Na Wema read and performed at the Alley Theatre as part of their Playwriting 360˚ Residency.  Pamoja Na Wema, which means kindness in Swahili, examines the effect of one random act of kindness on the life of the protagonist, Isobel.  Katie’s play is one of only six plays selected from Houston area schools.  The showcase will take place on the Alley Theatre’s Neuhaus Stage, May 13 at 7:00PM.   Admission is free.

Mayde Creek High School is a partner school with the Alley Theatre, including the Playwriting 360˚ Residency.  The partnership is made possible by a grant from Wood Group.
