Theatre alumna Tina Kelly directs the Department of Theatre production of contemporary playwright Charly Evon Simpson's Jump, a lyrical piece centered on the relationship between two sisters and their mother's memory.
“Depression, grief, suicide, and mental illness are just some of the themes Charly Simpson explores in her play Jump …While not offering any definitive answers, Simpson’s richly layered script does offer a ray of hope that connection is possible IF we pull together the courage to reach out, listen, and trust one another. It’s thought-provoking, cautionary storytelling that does what theater does best: informs, enlightens, entertains, and (hopefully) brings us closer together.”- BroadwayWorld.com
