This Is How It Goes:

Wittenberg Student Weighs in on Condition of Hugo Chavez

Small Play Deals With Big Issues

Nicole Waers‘15 Staff Writer

waersn@wittenberg.edu

“This Is How It Goes,” a play directed by Krissy Hartman, opened last Friday, Jan. 25 at the Wittenberg Student Theatre. It ran through last Sunday, Jan. 27. The plot follows married high school sweethearts who hit a lasting rough patch in their relationship. When an old friend from high school reappears, more stress is placed on the relationship. The play deals with themes of racism, and domestic violence. It tells a rich story of three people and how their lives ultimately change. Dylan George, ‘15, breaks the metaphorical fourth wall as he narrates to the audience of the play. (Elizabeth Doll/ The Torch)
