Law students have creative outlets

This is the program for a series of student-written, -performed and -directed shorts at the Yale Law School Last night I saw a series of nine 10-minute plays that were written by law students, as well as performed and directed by them. It was inside Davenport College, which is one of the undergrad residential colleges. I'd never been to one before; it was pretty cool. And so was the show.

Considering that this was not a drama school production, it was really impressive -- witty writing and mostly wonderful acting. More interesting than that superficial, unspecific review is simply the fact that law students have the time to put on such a show. They needn't, but do! Hard to imagine a solely creative equivalent coming out of SOM. Good for them.
