On the nights of November 26 – 28, Kelowna Secondary School’s Night Owl Theatre presented a powerful evening of One Act plays using both comedy and drama to explore the world of unique characters.

The Other Room by Ariadne Blayde, and directed by student Antony Knight, is a compelling glimpse into a unique and misunderstood mind. Austin is a brilliant teenage astronomer who happens to have autism. Lily is his popular classmate who also happens to have an interest in astronomy. A chance encounter after school leads to a growing connection between them. The play uses four characters to reveal Austin’s inner world and his constant struggle to connect with the world.

What’s it like to be awake when the rest of your world is asleep? Playwright Jonathan Dorf and director Anne-Marie Holmwood sought to answer this question in the play 4 A.M. Through a series of connected scenes and monologues a variety of characters explored the magic hour. Attendees learned lessons of hope and fear as they rose to the surface at 4 A.M and asked – Is the monster under the bed real? Is there anybody out there?

Kudos goes out to directors and players for two strong and thought-provoking performances.
