Troy High School Thespians to present “Trap”

915
Troy High School junior Cam Glasener delivers her lines during a dress rehearsal for the Troy High School Thespians' production of "Trap," which will be performed this Friday and Saturday in the Troy High School auditorium.

The Troy High School Thespians will present “Trap,” a play by Stephen Gregg, on Friday (Nov. 17) at 7 p.m. and Saturday (Nov. 18) in the Troy High School auditorium.

Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults. Tickets may be purchased online at troyhs.booktix.net or in person on the night of the show.

The play focuses on an incomprehensible event: every person in the audience of a high school play falls unconscious — every person but one.

Using interviews with witnesses, loved ones, first responders, and the investigators pursuing the case, a theatre ensemble brings the story of the strange event to life, documentary-style. But as the strands weave together into an increasingly dangerous web, it becomes clear that this phenomenon might not be entirely in the past.
