When the death of a family member reunites a group of disharmonious siblings, tensions ratchet as old rivalries reemerge and family secrets are revealed. This enthralling drama stars a select few of D&E’s finest thespians. It is a true original you won’t want to miss!

Mackenzie Jones, a junior at D&E recently returned to the theater program after taking a couple semesters off. She says, “Theater has been a passion of mine since I was young. I enjoy getting on stage and expressing myself in different ways.” Jones continues, “Being a part of theatre, I have made a lot of great friends. I found my family at D&E.” She stars as Vanna Simons in the production.

Writer, creator, and star of the show Kyia McGill reflects on her experience, “It has been an honor to be able to write and act in Twin Flame. Admittedly, it is initially jarring to hear your own words spoken back to you, but my favorite part is they are no longer my words; they are my actors and the characters they play. Hearing the people I have worked with and loved for years put their own– sometimes very different– emotions and opinions into my work has really brought it to life in a way that I never thought possible. I am forever thankful to the cast and crew of this show, none of this would be possible without them. If you would have told my younger self that I would be on stage, performing a play that I had written, with the people I loved, the stars in her eyes would have grown about ten sizes bigger.” She stars as Maude Simons in the production.

Lonnie Martin, Assistant Professor of Theatre & Film expresses his excitement for McGill, “I am just so proud of Kyia. This show is the culmination of her work and development as both a writer and actor during her college career. It has been an honor to guide her and her colleagues through what has been an incredibly rewarding creative process.”
