Plague Diaries, Short Films of Life in the Pandemic. Inspired by Daniel Defoe’s, A Journal of the Plague Year, a vivid, first-person account of the last plague to hit London, Plague Diaries, tell stories of Fresno during the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing, essential workers, economic ruin, but also kindness and generosity, are as relevant today as the day Defoe (Robinson Crusoe) set down his account in 1722. Plague Diaries is presented by the FCC Theatre and Film Departments.
Plague Diaries will premiere on-line on January 15, 2020 at 7pm.
The Line: Waging War against COVID-19
The Fresno City College Theatre Department presents THE LINE to virtual audiences this Spring.

At a time in which our own local hospitals feel the insurmountable weight of the pandemic, with cases on the rise and ICU’s reaching 0% capacities, The Line offers a visceral lens into the realities of frontline healthcare workers in New York as COVID-19 bludgeons communities and hospitals within the city.
