The Allegheny College Playshop Theatre begins its 2007-2008 season at 8 p.m. on September 7 and 8 with 10 short plays from 365 Days/365 Plays.

Parks, a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, decided in 2002 to write a play a day for a year, resulting in “365 plays in 365 days.” Some plays are short, less than a page, while others are lengthy. As with many of her previous works, including “Topdog/Underdog,” “Venus,” “Imperceptible Mutabilities in the Third Kingdom” and “The America Play,” each piece is marked by Parks' characteristic wit, comic situations and flair for language.
