The Denison Fringe Festival presents “Trenches,” an original work by Denison junior Evan Joslyn.
Gun violence is detrimental across the globe, causing catastrophic repercussions since the technology was invented. A gun’s sole purpose is to kill. This piece of theatre will explore the effect of guns and loss of life through the point of view of a nameless soldier in the trenches of the first World War. An introverted dreamer, with a fondness for Shakespeare and a longing for “brotherhood,” is pulled from the patterns of Wisconsin farm life and thrown into the chaos of one of the deadliest conflicts in human history.
Denison University’s Fringe Festival, modeled after Edinburgh’s legendary festival, takes place from April 18 to May 3, with a series of diverse original performances by students and faculty, guests, and student organizations in locations across the campus.
