About Kirin McCrory and CHOPS
Kirin is a senior BA Acting major with a Literature minor.
Marg, a new woman in a small town in the middle of somewhere, seems to be slowly knocking off the male population. With the blatancy of her most recent escapade, the women of the town think they finally have proof to go on, but once they are forced to examine Marg–and themselves–more closely, everyone realizes that no one knows exactly who’s butchering who.
About the Rod Park Playwriting Fellowship
The Rod Parker Playwriting Award and NewFest are both funded by the generous support of Rod Parker ’51. Mr. Parker wrote his first play while an undergraduate at Emerson College, and in 1991 made the Playwrights Festival possible by creating an endowment to fund fellowships for student playwrights and support the first productions of their work.
Emerson College has been very fortunate that alumnus Rod Parker has seen the importance of supporting new playwrights as a way of keeping the theatre vibrant.
