Hope Springs - A new play by lee folpe '23
Holden Theater, Amherst College (200 S Pleasant St, Amherst, MA 01002, Amherst MA)
Against the backdrop of a historic drought, an aspiring writer and an artistic stoner with body image issues embark on what is meant to be an idyllic summer volunteer job at a permaculture farm in the desert -- only to be confronted with an abusive boss, life-threatening heat, and their own internal demons. HOPE SPRINGS is a joint senior thesis project by lee folpe (playwriting) and Cameron Mueller-Harder (acting). Performances run April 6-8, 2023.
