Don’t miss one more chance to see the award-winning performance of Yorktown Theatre’s The Lottery, on February 17, at 7 pm in the Yorktown auditorium!
This compelling production won 2nd place at the district level of the VHSL One Act Play Conference Competition last month, so the Yorktown Theatre III and IV students will be competing again, at the regional level, on February 18th in Nokesville, VA.
This is your opportunity to experience riveting theatre, directed by Bailey Nassetta, a Yorktown graduate! The performance is free and open to the public.
The Lottery is a one-act play by Brainerd Duffield that was adapted from the original short story by Shirley Jackson. It tells the story of a small town that holds a grisly lottery every year in June to insure a plentiful harvest for the following year.
Yorktown Theatre Arts’ production of The Lottery explores the struggle between individuality and groupthink in a community, and the animal urges in all human beings.
