BGHS Drama - Family Matters posterBGHS Drama presents ‘Family Matters’

Battle Ground High School Drama Club proudly presents “Family Matters” beginning Jan. 30. Written by Sandra Finchel Asher, the production presents the “full catastrophe” of family life, embracing its comic, dramatic, farcical and tragic realities. The monologues and scenes deal with issues that almost all families deal with, as well as other issues that families must sometimes confront, such as neglect, abandonment, abuse, and sexual assault. 

This play is presented without depictions of physical violence; however, due to the intense emotional content, this play is not recommended for anyone under the age of 13. Performances will be from Jan. 30 to Feb. 1 and Feb. 13 to 15. All performances will begin at 7 p.m. in The Lair at Battle Ground High School, 300 W. Main St. 

The BGHS Drama Club will be performing “Family Matters” at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland this August. The play is being presented locally in a similar manner as it will be performed in Scotland. To support the intimate nature of this show, it is important for the audience to be close to the actors on stage, so only 70 seats will be sold per performance. With so few tickets available, it is recommended that you purchase your tickets online in advance. 

Tickets are available for purchase online at or at the door on the day of the show. Tickets are $5 for senior citizens, students, and BGPS staff, and $7 for the general public. Students must present an ASB card and staff must show an employee badge or other proof of employment to access the discount pricing.
