Playwright David Hansen Attends Senior Thesis Production I Hate This


Senior Theatre Arts major Brian Cook celebrated the performance of his senior thesis production, I Hate This: A Play Without the Baby, this past weekend, with shows on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Friday night’s sold-out show held a particularly special surprise: it was attended by the play’s author, David Hansen. Cook’s working relationship with Hansen began last year, while Cook was on the hunt for a one-man show to mount for his thesis project. He stumbled upon I Hate This, became interested, and soon established contact with the playwright himself.
