H-F students present play ‘A Spare Me’ on Feb. 24, 25 and 26

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 24, 25 and 26, students at Homewood-Flossmoor High School will be performing “A Spare Me,” a play focusing on saving humanity by creating a final generation of children.

The play examines how, as earth’s resources and population are dwindling, humanity puts everything it has left into one final generation. These children are selected for their genius and furnished with everything they could require — including genetically-engineered spare life forms that will ensure no child’s existence is ended by something as trivial as death.

But when academy student Sel is replaced by his spare after a tragic accident, his friends begin to reconsider their own identities. As they uncover the dark secrets behind their own lives, both the children and the spares set out to prove they have minds of their own.

Cast members are Meir Bassey, Sam Bouyer, Tinbit Dogisso, Trey Gerring, Julia Henry, Savannah Howard, Stella Hoyt, Kendall Laven, Flannery Mark, Moira Michel, Kelly Parker, Jazmin Rhodes, Jadon Smith, Bryce Stewart, Madison Vitolka and Amy Ward.


Student production assistants are Sean Haggerty, Morgan Kimmons, Casey Siengo and Joy Tabor.

This production, directed by teacher J.R. Willard-Rose, will be presented at 7 p.m. in H-F’s new Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for children, students and senior citizens. Tickets are available online.
