Biola University Theatre 21 proudly presents the fall production of Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas’ The Charm of Preparedness. A small college campus is turned upside down when a pre-med student begins to organize a campus-wide preparedness drill. Are his motives altruistic, or is it just a ploy to impress a nursing student? Will the students who volunteer to play disaster victims earn their extra credit? Can the community come together to support one another, or will personal ambition win the day? A wry comedy about growing up, The Charm of Preparedness examines how we learn to deal with life’s disasters, big and small.

"[His work] is full of rich poetry, shocking manipulations of form, and a real concern for the big issues." - Kristoffer Diaz (Pulitzer Prize Finalist, The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity)
