Project Ele is excited to announce the production of What Wasn't, an original play by Hannah Smetek, a Massaponax High School Alumnus and James Madison University theatre major.  What Wasn't is a play about the complexities of choice.  It is a story of trauma inflicted on a family of four.  It follows their split perspectives through shifting passages of time, piecing together the fragments of their broken home; torn apart from secrets, death and misunderstanding.

What Wasn't, selected to premiere at the Capital Fringe Festival 2019, will have two performances in Fredericksburg at the Central Rappahannock Regional Library, 1201 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg, VA 22401.

Wednesday, June 26th at 7:30 PM

Thursday, June 27th at 7:30 PM

The cost is $10 at the door.

Project Ele is devoted to finding stories about difficult subjects that prompt discussion bringing us closer to a place of love, generosity, compassion and understanding.
