Student Directed One Acts

Two Interesting One-Acts at HFCC

Robert Delany The Detroit Monitor June 28, 2007

Two interesting one-act plays by famous playwrights are among the three productions being offered in this year’s student directed One-Act Festival at Henry Ford Community College’s Adray Auditorium in Dearborn.

Of particular interest, and worth the $5 price of admission by itself, is the first play on the bill, Eugene O’Neil’s “The Web” from 1913. Lila Ghaddar plays Rose Thomas, a prostitute; Rashaud Best is Steve, her pimp; and Mike Fisher as Tim Moran, another resident of the same rundown building.

HFCC Presents One-Act Festival

Sue Suchyta Dearborn Times Herald July 22, 2007

Henry Ford Community College presents a student written play and two short classics by Pulitzer Prize winning playwrights during its annual One Act Festival.

Eugene O’Neill’s “The Web” written in 1913, captures the last night of a seriously ill woman who finds herself unable to break free from prostitution and despairs of finding a way to raise her infant daughter. When a Good Samaritan protects her from her violent pimp, her rescuer becomes a victim, and she falls under suspicion for his murder.
