Play written by Pine-Richland, North Allegheny girls to be staged at festival

Two local high school girls will have their play performed at a regional festival in Pittsburgh May 9 and 10.

Madeleine Ince, of Pine-Richland High School, and Casey Quinn, of North Allegheny High School, wrote a one act play called “Major” that will be performed at the Pittsburgh Fringe Festival. The girls also produced and will act in the play.

The play will go on at 2:30 p.m. May 9 and 10 at the Bistro to GO, 415 E. Ohio St, Pittsburgh.

“Major” tells the story of two high school best friends who meet up again for the first time after college. Both brings their differing experiences and perspectives to the meeting.

The play looks into the actor stereotypes and outlines the ups and downs of the arts.

The Pittsburgh Fringe Festival is a performing arts festival that runs May 8-10. The festival was modeled after the original Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest arts festival in the world.

The girls' play is the first ever Teen Fringe production.

Ince and Quinn met at Act One Theater School. They drew on life experience to create their Fringe piece.
