Billy loves Allison, Sean love Kendra, and Seth loves Celie forever and ever.
The University of Scranton Players kicks 2013 with "Language of Angel" by Naomi Iizuka. This modern ghost story, set in the caves of North Carolina, tells the story of the mysterious disappearance of Celie Gaines and the effect her disappearance has on those close to her. Each of the characters reveals how that night haunts them and changes their lives forever.
