Casa de Coffee
                -Fall 2006

Casa de Coffee, which was written by Brooks locals Nicole Jennissen and Rob Brown, is a light hearted but cynical look at one day in the life of a pretentious coffee shop. Jennissen, who directed the play and says the setting was key to the entire production.

"The interior area of the campus cafeteria replicated a coffee house down to the small details," said Jennissen.

The play centers around one shift of work in the coffee house. New employee Sarah Findle starts her first day at a new job as a waitress and she, along with the audience is introduced to a wide array of opinionated characters.

The performances were also presented as dessert theatre.

Co-writer Brown said this particular production provided him the opportunity to scratch a real particular itch - seeing the company tackle an original Brooks-written play.

"I'm sure this will open up the idea of doing more original work here in the city," he said.

Thanks to Medicine Hat College - Brooks Campus for use of their venue.
