First plays showcase new group’s talent

Flawless beauty takes tremendous work — at least, that is the message conveyed in “Opus” by Michael Hollinger and “Speed-the-Plow” by David Mamet, the first plays to be produced by the Repertory Project, an independent theater group headed by Emma Johnson ’14 and Skylar Fox ’15. Both plays, by disparate means, showcase the role of sacrifice in the pursuit of great art.

Both plays were performed in the Production Workshop Upspace Feb. 2-4.
