“It’s Not You, It’s Me,” Western Hills High School’s spring production, opens at 7 p.m. Thursday and continues Friday and Saturday. The play is a short comedy that will have playgoers laughing and crying by the final curtain.
This play features several short scenes that revolve around one major theme: breaking up. Whether your girlfriend is a pathological liar or your boyfriend is addicted to ESPN, one thing is always for sure, someone is going to get dumped.
Each of these comedic scenes explores the art of breaking up. Whether you have been dumped or have been the one doing the dumping, we’ve all heard the words “It’s not you, it’s me.”
A variety of characters, some that you will feel like you have met before, are found in the middle of breaking up. There are several talented actors who will be playing the parts of those breaking hearts and those whose hearts are breaking.
The cast includes Kaitlyn Luyster, Michael Church, Lacey Lydia Wallace, Wink Jones, Gabe Warren, Hannah Sayles, Madison Brawner, Calvin Andries, Christina Wray, Amy Charlton, Britney Markey, Jonathan Hockensmith, Blake Sewell-Snow, Raychel Blackburn, Jennifer Troth and Victoria Word. Each brings to life the moment we all dread in a relationship: the break up.
“This play has been very interesting to direct,” said director Amy Schwarz. “Breaking up is a subject that we are all familiar with on some level, so it is fun to see how the actors choose to interpret each scene.”
“‘It’s Not You, It’s Me’ is a show that everyone can relate to, especially for those who have gone through a break-up,” said senior Katy Luyster. Senior Hannah Sayles says of the play, “I love this production. I feel like it makes everyone grateful for how they’ve handled break-ups in the past.”
“It’s Not You, It’s Me” is a fast-paced and entertaining production.
