The play is over. The performances went really well and I’m very proud of all the students involved. The day after the last performance we had strike.

A lot of materials went to a trash dump at the end of the day. And yes, I feel badly about it. I hope that thinking about the environmental impact through this process will mean that future shows will end up with less in the trash.
