Fringe Goes Long Offers Diverse Plays Written by Students

Tuesday, December 09, 2014
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Beginning three years ago, Fringe Goes Long was created as a program for the theater arts community. Full-length plays are edited throughout the semester and performed in their entirety by actors and actresses who perform the story live on stage. “We take submissions of full-length plays the semester before and figure out which ones we want to work on,” said Roy Conboy, the professor who makes the script selection each semester. “We do about three or four in a semester, it’s actually a huge undertaking, even though it’s only three or four plays.” Selected this semester, “Broken” by Patricia Reynoso and “The New American Order” by Conrad Panganiban both premiered on December 1 and 2. The third chosen play, “She Was Here” by Becky Raeta, will show on December 9.
