248 Miles Artwork

The Friends Academy Theater Department recently put on an original play written and directed by our very own Andrew Geha. The characters, especially Mikaela, the main protagonist, dealt with an array of problems and emotions that teenagers face every day including depression and bullying. The actors did a wonderful job of portraying the intensity of these feelings and balancing metaphysical themes with realistic scenarios. The audience was moved with one senior saying, “this play was breathtaking” and others even teared up. Teachers, like Dr. Quinland, used this play as a stepping stone for serious conversations about our community and struggles FA students go through. Overall, this play was a work of art and brought to light universal high school problems that otherwise go simply ignored.
