Hello my fellow Grapplers,
We are incredibly honored and excited to be serving as your two Editors-in-Chief for the 2017-2018. The Grappler is an incredible organization with members dedicated to our mission of grappling with current events in theatre and beyond. In our current socio-political sphere, what more could a student organization could ask for?
It is with our new current team that we hope to do the greatest things The Grappler has yet to accomplish in this very school year, which includes a lab performance slot in the winter as well as programming around each of our school’s theatre seasons and our organization’s themes. We will start the year off by exploring stories of origin as our theme.
Looking at and learning from the past is a dramaturg’s pastime, but it is through our stories of origin that we find direction for the future. Whether that is pushing against something or using inspiration from a certain event to propel us into the future, our origin is what has brought us here today.
The Grappler would love to grapple with our origin stories, your origins stories, and everything in between.
We cannot wait for another exciting school year.
Trisha Mahoney & Bri Schwartz
