“Our Place” lets Shrestha bring her ideas to life

Telling the tales of people who share a place in common, Terry Gabbard’s “Our Place” was directed by senior Maya Shrestha.

“It is four separate stories that take place on a dock, a spot that holds a special meaning to each set of characters,” Shrestha said, “The stories range from comedy to tragedy.”

The dock was comprised of raised platforms and a canoe. The different characters of each brought props to more accurately tell their story including fishing rods, a CD player, and a quilt. Furthermore, different light projected on the back of the stage allowed each story to develop a distinctive mood.

“My favorite part of directing has been getting to develop my own ideas and see them played out on the stage,” Shrestha said.

“I had a fantastic cast that did great job of bringing my ideas to life and I’m extremely proud of all of them,” she added.
