Quinnipiac University's Theater for Community presents a student performance of the Naomi Wallace's The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek this week. The play is about teenagers in the Great Depression and a dare that puts 15-year-old Dalton Chance in a race over the 100-foot-high trestle over Pope Lick Creek against an oncoming freight train. Students Michael Bobenhausen, Sara Detrik and Noah Golden (pictured, left to right) are among the cast.
