Solo show culminates actress's self-designed theater program

Tossing and turning on a simple purple couch, Lillian Sullivan ’10 delivers an ode to a pizza man. Rhythmically transforming from needy hopelessness to frantic desire, Sullivan takes her character to extremes. She prattles to the audience in iambic pentameter as she displays her dramatic talent in an intimate 18-by-20-foot space. Sullivan, an anthropology major from Telluride, Colo., performed “Three In One,” a set of three monologues, Dec. 1-3 in Bates’ Black Box Theater.

Trashion Show 2009: Refuse reused, in the swankiest way

Strutting down a vibrantly illuminated runway to blaring music played by student DJs, Kathryn Moraros ’10 modeled the winning creation: a 1950s-style cocktail dress layered with nonrecyclable tea bag packets. Other ensembles gracing the Gray Cage runway on a mild November evening were fashioned from unused tents, discarded printer paper, cardboard boxes, aluminum cans and duct tape. This was the fourth annual Trashion Show, held Nov. 18 following the Harvest Meal.
