"Wild Strawberries"

The EMS One-Act Play Team will perform their 2016 UIL Competition piece, “Wild Strawberries” by Texas playwright Jerry Ayers, on Thursday, November 17 at 7:00 pm and Saturday, November 19 at 2:00 pm in the Early High School Student Activity Center. Tickets are available for $2.00 (suggested donation) at the door.


“My brother has been shot dead!” And so begins our tale of lies, love, and lunch. It's a bright morning on the di Nikoli estates and the loyal maid Truffledina just wants to eat breakfast.  But her mistress, Nikolette di Nikoli, wants to disguise herself as her supposedly dead brother and go into the city to take care of his will and her inheritance.  Nikolette and Truffledina head off to the city, where they meet (and confuse) many of the residents.  Hilarity is guaranteed as one mistaken identity leads to another, loyalties and love are traded, and chaos ensues in the pursuit of “Wild Strawberries”.
