McMurry Theatre Student Wins Statewide Playwriting Award


ABILENE, Texas – McMurry Theatre student, David Remschel, is one of two winners at the college level in the annual Texas Educational Theatre Association’s (TETA) Playfest playwriting competition.

His play, entitled The Annie Chronicles, was written as a class assignment and was selected from entries throughout the state. The play is a gripping psychological drama involving a father trying to come to grips with the death of his daughter and to recognize his own culpability in that event.

The McMurry Theatre Department will present a performance of the play at the annual TETA Theatrefest in Houston in late January, which will be followed by a discussion with the playwright and the cast. This is the 12th winning playwright McMurry has had in this competition since 1999.
