Before traveling to state competition, Superior High School thespians will give a free public performance of their one-act play, "An Absolutely True Story (As Told By a Bunch of Lying Liars)," at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8, in the Superior High School Performing Arts Center.

"It's a comedy about a family's precious vase getting broken and the very absurd lies told to explain how the breakage happened," head coach Cheri Tesarek said. SHS alumnus Josh Smith, a recent University of Wisconsin-Superior graduate, is the assistant coach for the play.
