اقرأ It was only five days before Silver Masque’s first Fortnight performance, an event that fourth-year theatre major Liam Hofmeister had only been preparing for a little over a week. But he wasn’t worried.

موقعنا “It’s really rewarding just to be like, ‘Okay, here’s our rehearsals, we’ll figure it out, and hopefully we’ll be ready for it,’” Hofmeister said. “It almost feels like we’re taking a risk, but everything’s been coming together really well.” Silver Masque is the oldest student organization on campus, putting on shows at Northeastern for more than 80 years. The club is dedicated to putting on performances at events called Fortnights every other Thursday night. Hofmeister is directing a play at the first of these events, scheduled for Sept. 21 in the Ryder Theatre Lab.

For the first time, student playwrights are partnering with professional Boston playwrights to bring their visions to the stage.

The students were ultimately responsible for getting the show ready for Thursday night. For Hofmeister, that meant working with his team of actors and designers to bring student playwright Georgeanne Oliver’s vision, titled “Erica Speaks,” to light. “[The play is] a riff on a murder-mystery podcast. It’s basically this guy who’s obsessively trying to solve this young woman’s murder however many years ago,” Hofmeister said. “ It’s an interesting look at who has the right to tell who’s story, and what are the motivations behind the stories . Megan Warshofsky, a second-year theatre and business administration double major, spoke about the intensity of the show.
