Alexander F. Kip, a former Gahanna Lincoln HS
drama student and Class of 2006 graduate, is returning to his home stage with My Other Voice
, an original play inspired by true events.
During his senior year of college, Kip was diagnosed with cancer and told that he had a 15-30 percent chance of survival. During treatment, he lost his voice and was unable able to sing or perform.
For two nights only, August 3-4, 2012, at 7:30 p.m.
, in the GLHS Auditorium,
the production will explore the uncertain terrain of a young adult with cancer. While not a child, he also not the older traditional cancer patient often dramatized in popular film and literature.
“This is an exciting and unique opportunity for the Columbus drama
community to experience a production-in-progress before its return to
New York,” said GLHS Theatre Director Cindi Macioce
. The workshop production at GLHS will be presented with scripts in-hand as changes will be made daily.
Kip began writing this play while acting in New York. After three developmental readings in NYC, Kip decided he was ready to do a more in-depth workshop of the play in preparation for a larger public.
As a drama student, Kip really supported our theatre program...he has so much talent and an incredibly strong work ethic.
