Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Chris, the Wabash One Acts haven’t taken place recently”. You would be right but, I’m not writing about the Wabash One Acts, I’m writing about the DePauw One Acts (*gasp*).
Last night, I accompanied my girlfriend, a Danny, into enemy territory to watch these plays that were written by Depauw students. The three, one-act plays were entitled “Battle, Baby, Bird”, and they were quite good. I found myself laughing out loud at the funnier plays, and being drenched in solemn emotion during the more serious bits. Overall, they were very enjoyable.
As a Wabash man, I know that I am supposed to have this “hate” for DePauw that is driven by centuries (okay, maybe not that long) of feuding. I am meant to look down at the neanderthalic Danny-boys and smirk in the knowledge that I am a better man, but I am continuously gaining more and more respect for the the school to the south, and the students that attend it.
