Ode to social justice

Jesuit High School Drama’s fall play, “In the Matter of Scott Daniel Warren, or Scenes and Fragments about a Play in the Desert,” challenged a complex reality, leaving an impact on its audience. 

The show, which touched on aspects of immigration, blended Catholic social justice teachings, contemporary influences, and real accounts. Centered around the prosecution of Scott Warren, who provided aid to two migrants, the play dissected the intent behind Warren’s actions.

Lights! Sound! Rain!

Vibrant colors flash on a pitch black stage as thunder booms in the background. While the music crescendos, the entire cast of the play gathers downstage, forming a line facing the audience.

Thunder claps again as the lights go white, letting the audience see the falling raindrops soak the awaiting ensemble. The show ends.
