Evening of short plays looks at how happiness is hard to find

Posted 10/31/19

Matches, a series of nine short, two-person plays written by Peter Anderegg will be performed this month as Fitchburg State University’s Main Stage theater production.

Anderegg’s works comprise an evening of 10-minute plays exploring themes surrounding the idea that happiness is hard to find, and something is always getting the way.

Matches will be performed in the Wallace Theatre for the Performing Arts at the McKay Complex, 67 Rindge Road. Admission is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted at the door to go toward funding a spring production of Matches in New York City, where students will be given a chance to showcase their talents as they transition into the professional world.

Performances will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19; 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20; 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21; 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22; 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23; and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24.

Matches is presented by Fitchburg State in collaboration with The Thisbe Theater Company, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the support and development of playwrights’ new works by offering readings, workshops, and full productions for selected scripts, and to support full-time students gain professional experience in the performance and technical aspects of production. More specifically, it will support students in high impact internship/capstone independent study at select venues in New York City.

The event is part of Fitchburg State University’s 125th anniversary celebration. Throughout the 2019-20 academic year, the University will be holding programs celebrating the breadth and diversity of the institution and the vitality of its campus community. Learn more on the Anniversary page.
