[x] - The GAP Productions are student-generated performances that allow aspiring artists to bring their creative visions to life.  It’s a rare opportunity for undergraduates to self-direct, self-teach, and immerse themselves in the experience of putting on a full-length play for the rest of the campus and the surrounding theater community.  The entirely student-led production is not funded by the university, no participants are paid, and the student directors and producers frequently dig into their own pockets to ensure that the show will go on.
This season’s production is One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, the social significance of which is addressed in a note from the student director: 

"In our generation that is so conditioned to labeling, categorization, trend-setting and trend-following, it is easy and convenient to take the extremities of human behavior and box them in (or out) as ‘crazy.’ 
What I love about this play is its ability to present these complex personalities honestly and to make us question the nature of insanity and the nature of who we are. 
At its core the story is a simple battle of good and evil, set in a world where the human psyche is simultaneously submissive and unrelenting, apathetic and violently passionate, and self-healing as well as self-destructive. 
One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest not only asks us to question how to treat our chaotic brains but how to treat others, especially those that may be so far removed from the way we live.”

The amount of money required to see this project through is minuscule is comparison to professional productions, and every small contribution goes a long way in purchasing props, sets, and acquiring the rights to the show. 
Many thanks to those who are able to donate - for those who are interested in the production but are unable to contribute monetarily, please spread the word to interested parties who may be able to help these students out!

"Now is not the time for verbal swordplay, for unlikely flights of imagination and wildly shifting perspectives, for metaphysical conceit, for wit.
And nothing would be worse than a detailed scholarly analysis. Erudition. Interpretation. Complication.
Now is a time for simplicity. Now is a time for, dare I say it, kindness."
Wit by Margaret Edson

"…We can feel sorry for youth, the way it takes its timidness for idealism, and for old age, the way its heart breaks with stoic superiority. We see emperors trembling over popular songs, and street shysters shaking at the sound of the last trumpet. We ignore the comedian’s mask and see the poet putting his mask on in the dark. We behold the contented man in his impoverishment, and in the man who “labors and is heavy laden” we see the capitalist. We observe people in love and see them blush at each other, suspecting that they’re deceived deceivers. We see parents bringing children into the world in order to be able to say to them: how luck you are to have parents like us! — and see the children going out and doing the same thing. We can eavesdrop on innocence in its lonely extremities of love, and on the two-bit whore reading Schiller…We see God and the Devil making fools of each other, and we nurture in ourselves the absolutely unshakable conviction that both of them are drunk…A peace of mind, a contentedness, Melchior — !"
Moritz Stiefel (Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind, translated by Jonathan Franzen)
