The University of North Florida’s Department of English will present its annual Playwrights’ Project 2008, which features original one-act plays by UNF students. This event is free and open to the public.

Ammar Al Maani, a UNF graduate student, wrote the play “11/9,” based on recent events in Amman, Jordan, where an international wedding was crashed by a suicide bomber who discovers his brother is the groom’s best man. Other plays address family relationships and coming to terms with the past in the present. The plays contain adult language and themes.

Performances will be held on Saturday, Dec. 6, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 7, at 2 p.m. in the Matthews Computer Science Center, Building 15, Room 1303. For more information, contact the UNF Department of English at (904) 620-2273.
