Ten Athens High School students are presenting original and adapted one-act plays Thursday, Feb. 6 through Saturday, Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m.

Students were selected in December for this honor. The plays include three scripts relating to high school conflicts.

The first three plays are: The Recovery, written and directed by senior thespians Megan Myers and Rachel Scherer; The F Word, written and directed by senior honor thespian Maile Orr; and Kiss and Tell, written and directed by thespian Ameena Huq and senior Amirah Fauzi.

The other half of the evening includes thrillers, opening with The Man Who Loved Flowers, based on a short story by Stephen King, adapted and directed by senior honor thespians Zoe Hatfield, Elizabeth Lassey and Alexa Williams.

The second thriller is another adaptation, TWILIGHT ZONE: The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street, directed by thespian Matt Oviatt, followed by a stage adaptation of the board game Clue, written and directed by Naima Burns-Watson.

The evening's performances will run approximately two hours. Tickets are $5 and will be available at the door.
