KALAMAZOO -- Student playwrights from Western Michigan University will debut scenes and one-act plays they've written at 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, on the 10th floor of Sprau Tower on the WMU campus.

Students from WMU's Department of Theatre and other area actors will help bring the works to life. Sponsored by the Department of English, the event is free and open to the public.

The works presented were developed in an advanced playwriting course taught this semester by Dr. Arnie Johnston, chairperson of the WMU Department of English. Among the works featured will be Michael Agrusso's "Metropolis Man," Ingrid Hawkinson's "The Slam of the Door," Sean Glavin's "Shut Up and Listen," Bethany Gibson's "Special Delivery" and Peg Katona's "Labor Lost."
