Georgia Southern Theatre & Performance Senior Directs ‘K2’

Opening the spring semester on stage at the Center for Art and Theatre will be a production of “K2” by Patrick Meyers.  Directed by senior David Jackson as part of his senior honors project, “K2;” a play of harrowing physical action and a compelling drama explores the depth of friendship in the face of tragedy.

K2, the world’s second-highest mountain, situated in Pakistan’s Karakoram Range, is considered by many to be far more challenging than Everest. Two American climbers, Taylor (a physicist) and Harold (a district attorney), are stuck 27,000 feet high on K2. They have survived a near-fatal fall, lost most of their supplies, and must determine how to get themselves off the mountain before the sunsets. What happens when you are literally on the edge and time is running out?

Serving as Jackson’s honor thesis, this production features Will Cox and Ryan Beverly.  Jackson and the cast have spent the fall semester in rock climbing labs through Southern Adventures training for the climbing demands of the production.
