Free Evening At Kennedy Center Featuring Student Written Play
Arts & Culture

This Friday, October 1, VSA, an affiliate of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, will present the world premiere of a play written by a student.  The play, The Marionette Effect, was written by 17-year-old Laura Hogikyan and was selected from hundreds of submissions as part of VSA's Playwright Discovery Program.

The Marionette Effect tells the story of Stella, a teenager whose musical dreams are derailed after having a stroke.  Starring Helen Hayes Award recipient Jenna Sokolowski, The Marionette Effect explores Stella's journey through imagery, humor, and poetry.

This event also features a performance of Jack From Above, a one-man show performed by Tony Award-winning director Jack Hofsiss that chronicles his experiences after a diving accident in 1985.  The play is a tale of life, love, art, the human body, and the human spirit that is both harrowing and hilarious.

VSA is an international non-profit organization founded more than 35 years ago by Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith to create a society where people with disabilities learn through, participate in, and enjoy the arts.
