Alum Mark Snyder has two new plays Lila Cante and Wipe Away published through Sam French publications! Congrats! Buy the plays here
Wipe Away is a short play about: “As he plots his escape from the rural Midwest, Travis is discovered by the one person who might convince him to stay. Two lost souls must confront the brutal truth about themselves and each other in a coming-of-age drama where a pair of headlights along one highway road illuminates a path toward a dangerous future.”(Sam French blurb)
Lila Cante was Mark’s thesis play at OU and a full length play about:” A reclusive singer-songwriter makes an album that rocks the world. Now, as the music industry implodes, two siblings must come together to battle over their legendary mother’s legacy and her twenty years of silence. A play about music and art, connection and isolation, power and commerce, and the ever-changing landscape of what it means to be a family today. “(Sam French blurb)
