Bridgewater, Va. – Members of the Pinion Players are presenting and performing in two plays in the coming weeks. Senior Kylee Lorio is directing the play “American Buffalo” which will be performed in Cole Hall on March 24 and 25 at 8 p.m. 

“American Buffalo” is a two act play by David Mamet that explores the ideas of dishonesty and mistrust among members of an aborted burglary attempt. 

Senior Kylie Chisnell is directing “Death of a Salesman” which will also be showing in Cole Hall on April 6, 7 and 8 at 8 p.m. 

“Death of a Salesman” is a play by Arthur Miller which explores the ideas of impotence and loss of identity in one’s life through an examination of the last 24 hours of a salesman’s life before he commits suicide.

Elections for leadership positions in the Pinion Players are coming up, but a date and candidates have not been selected yet. 

“We’ll be electing new officers to be in leadership positions,” said senior Carlos Allen, the vice president of the Pinion Players.

The Pinion Players will be running a booth at Admitted Students Day on March 26. For the Pinion Players, the event is mainly to promote and stoke interest in the club to rising first-years.
