The Breakup That Broke Time by Ian McWethy
Evan is pretty surprised when he joins a video call and finds his ex Della on it, but even more surprised to find that she's calling from a year earlier, when they were still together. Before they can even start to guess what's going on, Evan's unstable flame from one year in the future logs on - and that's before things start to get weird. According to a wild-haired time-hopping scientist, Evan and Della have to keep their future on its predetermined course despite what they might hear from the Hindenburg, their kids, or their future overlords. But what if there's a way out of this virtual time vortex where no one joins a cult or clones themselves?
Don’t miss this clever, hilarious ensemble farce written especially for virtual performance by a Yorktown alum!

Drive-by Video-Mapping Installation: “Collaboration During Isolation”
As part of Arts in the Schools Month, the YHS Technical Theatre Class (as well as students from all other Arlington high schools) will display videos exploring their dreams and hopes for the future on an 8 x 14 ft screen built in the shape of a head and speech bubble.
The pop up screen will be set up for an evening at a time at each of the four Arlington high schools during March 2021; March 16th it will be at Yorktown. The videos will also be broadcast live on the nights of each event through Arlington Arts here: Arlington Arts Facebook page #projectingtogether!
Yorktown and the other Arlington High Schools are grateful to Arlington Cultural Affairs for their time and expertise, and to the Wolftrap Foundation for their Grants for High School Performing Arts Teachers, whose support made this innovative project possible. The students worked with Andres Luque, Arlington Arts Facilities Manager, Jared Davis, Arlington Arts Scene Shop Manager and Patrick Lord, Projection and Video Designer to create and produce their videos.
