Henry Ford Community College Presents Thought-Provoking Student Written One Act Plays

Sue Suchyta Dearborn Times Herald June 2005

Henry Ford Community College will present its annual New Playwright’s Workshop, featuring student-written one act plays, for four more performances this coming weekend. The performance features David Kowalchyck’s “Why Do Carpenter’s Build Things Better?” and Darrell Wheat’s “The Decommissioning of a Train”. Both dramas are complex thought provoking, and conflict-ridden. It’s not escapist, light entertainment: If you want that, go to the local cinema-plex.
