CHOICES is a collection of short, one-act comedic dramas written by local award-winning playwright Jeffrey Hale and directed by SIUC Department of Theater student Adam Floro. Featuring a cast of eight performers from across the region, CHOICES tells the story of three American couples in three different time periods, all of whom are forced into difficult choices when time and circumstance face them with forks in their life's roads. All prize winning plays, the stories within choices will connect with anyone who has ever been compelled to make a difficult choice with regard to life, love, or happiness.Return to event list.
The evening of performances will be enhanced by live music, as well as a dramatic original score composed by director Adam Floro. Brief intermissions between each play will give audience members a chance to sample baked goods and coffee provided by local bakers and church members, with all proceeds going to benefit Marion Medical Mission and its life-saving work in bringing safe, clean, and sustainable sources of drinking water to some of Africa's most desperately impoverished regions.
