Elmira College Director of Theatre John Kelly recently wrote a one act play entitled Mandala. The play received its premier performances October 29th as part of a series of community awareness programs at Seaside High School in Port Orange, Florida. Mandala concerns four young high school women who come together after the deaths of two friends due to texting while driving. They seek to memorialize their friends by creating a simple Tibetan sand sculpture, a mandala. Emotions arise as the women come to grips with the loss of their friends and their innocence.
