A world premiere by playwright Sean Michael Welch, the comedy "Thread of the Warp" takes place at Albion College November 20-23 in the Herrick Theatre, located in the College's Dow Recreation and Wellness Center Complex. The play runs at 8 pm. Thursday through Saturday, with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee.
"Thread" traces the travails of high-schooler Jacob Bloom, whose mother begins a campaign to muzzle his favorite rock star. Trying to survive in a world that doesn't make sense to him, Jacob struggles with fixing problems he didn't create.
Currently serving as artist-in-residence with Albion's Department of Theatre, Welch was awarded the 1999 Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival John Cauble Short Play Award and won the 2000 KC/ACTF Region III Ten-Minute Play Competition. His award-winning "Earl the Vampire" was performed at Albion in 2012.
