The Donn B. Murphy One-Acts Festival

Featuring Roots
By Devika Ranjan (COL ’17)
including staged readings & outside performances
Directed by Gabriel Berkowitz (COL ’20)
Produced by Christian Collier (COL ’19)

Richa, a young Indian woman, moves into a wealthy area and soon becomes involved with a group of local mothers. However, her arrival isn't welcomed by everyone, and self-proclaimed leader Jane believes Richa to be a threat to their established way of life. When Jane is served divorce papers and an eviction notice, the foundation of the sisterhood further crumbles, and the pristine nature of the neighborhood is revealed to be a façade. Georgetown alumna Devika Ranjan explores themes of tradition, culture, and social change in this one-act play. The Festival also features staged readings of Diagnos-Mis by Vanessa Chapoy (COL ’18) and Evelyne by Claire Derriennic (COL ’17), as well as guest performances by co- curricular performance groups.
