Advances to IHSA State Contest this Weekend
Chicago Heights, IL–(ENEWSPF)– The nine-member team from Marian Catholic High School captured the Sectional Title in Group Interpretation at last weekend’s IHSA Forensics contest held at Thornridge High School.
“Protestants Cry, Too” by Robert Cormier, is a lively and moving story about a 1940’s era Catholic family in which the oldest son, Michael, falls in love with Jessica, a Protestant. Imbued with religious stereotypes, “Protestants Cry, Too” also portrays a family’s change of heart once their stern and ultra-religious father softens his view.
Marian Forensics Director Mark Donaway is proud of the team’s accomplishments.
“With a multi-cultural cast, the students embraced the story to perfection,” he stated.
