Scottsdale Community College’s Theatre Arts program is to present haunting, poetic coming-of-age story, “The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek” by Naomi Wallace.

The student-directed, full-length play will be performed at 2 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 11, and 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 12, in the Black Box Theatre in the school’s Performing Arts Center.

Set in 1936, the play is a coming-of-age story with a wicked twist that reaches into the depths of a nation and asks what lies beneath. It is a complicated, interwoven play that moves back and forth in time between past and present, according to a press release.

The play contains adult language and content, and brief nudity. It is not suitable for children.

Tickets are free with reservation. Go to and search for play’s name.

The PAC Black Box Theatre at Scottsdale Community College, is located 9000 E. Chaparral Road in Scottsdale.
