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. - Cindi Macioce
