Kenyon College Dance, Drama & Cinema Club (KCDDCC) presents "Hope Springs Internal," an original play and senior thesis production by Eleanor Evans-Wickberg '22.

Tickets are available through the Bolton Theater Box Office, 740-427-5546, beginning at 1 p.m. on September 27, 2021, and at the door if not sold out.

Charlotte, a self-proclaimed "performance artist" is about to get her big break at the Chicago Middle School Arts Festival. Unfortunately for Charlotte, her mom and her two sisters — Darcy, an ex-ballerina, and Amelia, a precocious violin "prodigy" — just don’t understand her. If only her dad, who’s busy helping Obama get elected, would show up and rescue her... Part family drama, part wacky comedy, part coming-of-age story, "Hope Springs Internal" is a hilarious and angst-filled journey into girlhood, politics and what it means to be an artist.

Run time: 1 hour and 50 minutes, with a ten minute intermission.
