JSU Drama Production of "Closer" Currently Playing at Stone Theater
"It will be a very provocative show," says Carlton Ward, head of the
JSU Drama Department. "Audiences should be prepared." But that is not to say that the dialogue in this drama is used maliciously
or thoughtlessly, explains student director Jason Skinner. Rather, "Closer" offers a raw glimpse into the painful side of love
as four people intentionally destroy one another. "There is a vulgarity to the dialogue that might catch some people off guard,"
says Skinner, who is directing the play as part of his senior practicum. "But it also presents the truth. This is how people in
love — or at least people who think they’re in love — fight. "They don’t pull any punches." See story at The
