12/20/12 by Lee Harrison Daniel, directed by Caitlin Mayernik - December 18th, 7pm

On December 21st, 2012, the world was supposed to end. On December 20th, 2012, a 12-year-old Lee Harrison Daniel was really freaked out about that possibility. Ten years later, they've written a play about it. 12/20/12 takes place at a middle school lunch table and follows Frankie, Ronnie, Taylor, and Alex as they navigate math class gossip, spring play auditions, and shifting dynamics in their friend group and the world, all in the week leading up to winter break (and the possible end of the world).
