One Act Play reigned victorious at their bi-district meet on March 22, 2021. Grady will be sending 20 students to the Regional One Act Play meet in Post on April 15, 2021. There are 16 incredible actors and four eminent crew members. They will be performing their play, Lafayette No.1 by Mandy Conner.
The play is a thrilling drama set in the 1800s during the yellow fever outbreak. As the yellow fever epidemic ravages the streets of 1816 New Orleans, no one thinks of the orphans known as the Forgotten- except for Lizzie Landry. Lizzie brings bread from her mother’s kind employer to the band of the homeless youths she’s befriended, even though the local police and politicians consider them nothing but a nuisance. But when the epidemic entangles Lizzie’s fate with those of the Forgotten, they all must band together to hold the city accountable for their most vulnerable citizens. A haunting and immediate historical drama.
