About the Play
"The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson
Slowly, an old town is dying.  But, the dwindling members of this town continue to cling to the old ways.  Old ways which include an annual "Lottery."  A classic, well-known short story, this adaptation is the tale of a town where conformity and tradition conspire to hide a horrifying age-old secret.  What is the mystery of this quiet, farmland village?  Come and find out!
"Who Let the Dogs Out?" by Tanya Follick
This play, written by WCHS' own Tanya Follick, was the winner of the coveted Critics' Choice Award at the District XII Thespians Festival in January, 2004.  A suspense/thriller one act play, this is a story of three teenage girls who are home alone.  Mysteriously, Danielle's dogs keep getting loose from their pen outside, and finding their way inside.  Is it an accident, or something worse?  And, who (if anyone) has let the dogs out?
