SUMMER UPDATE / by Jacob Presson

My final semester of College was the busiest of all. Full of new plays and workshops, networking, and trudging through the last Quantitative Reasoning exams that I will ever take. Ever.

In February, I was in the first workshop production of They Drink, a new play by Ian Campbell, presented at the Midwinter Madness Short Play Festival. In March, I got to be in a staged reading of Zach Stephens' new play, This is Dogwood, at Shetler Studios. In April, I appeared in a staged reading of Luke Mazurek's new farce, Meekus's Never-ending Journey... at Marymount Manhattan College where I was given the chance to live out my dream of playing Arthur Miller. And then in May, I got to appear in a staged presentation of Joey Povinelli and Blake Jarvis's new sitcom pilot, “Sheltered.” Later that same month, myself, along with my two other friends/co-writers (PJ Adzima and Allison Scott) got back to work on our play, The Party Play. We even got to have a group table read of the new draft at Shetler Studios with some Grade A actors. 

And now it is June, I have graduated College, and starting in July, will be embarking on One on One's, 'The Bridge' program.

I’m also taking a really cool poetry class.  

I can't wait to see what the future holds!
