“Bound,” an original drama, concerns an

responsible for the family farm and for the care of their autistic
brother. Their plan to take turns attending college is shaken when the
older brother graduates and sees what his life will become when his
sister leaves for her turn. Both siblings are bound by their duty to
their family and pulled by their need for a life outside of their family
farm and their small town.
The ASU Theatre’s production of “Bound” is under
the stage direction of Tim Bohn, dramatist and assistant professor of
Theatre. Scenic and lighting design will be under the direction of Jeff
McLaughlin, assistant professor of Theatre. Brent Foland, assistant
professor of Theatre, will serve as costume designer. Stage management
duties for the production have been assigned to Joe Akers, a senior

Jonesboro, will serve as assistant stage manager.
