Kristen LePine, Instructor of English and Theater at the Fauquier Campus of Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC), will have a staged reading of her play, “Dire Wolves,” on Thursday, May 24th at the Greater Reston Arts Center.  Admission is free to this event, and the Center is located at 12001 Market Street, Reston, VA.

 The play was commissioned by the HUB Theatre, and examines how quick changes impact personal identity as six people must either adapt and evolve or face the possibility of extinction.  LePine’s play is set in the 21st century in Evansville, Indiana and is directed by Matt Bassett.

 LePine holds a Master of Fine Arts in Dramatic Writing from Humboldt State University.  Her works have been presented various venues, including The Pittsburgh New Works Festival, Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Arts.  Another of her plays (also commissioned by The HUB), “Foolish Fire,” recently took top honors at the Firehouse New American Play Festival.
