John Boulanger was shocked to learn his play was going to be featured at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

The cast of “House of Several Stories” performed for the final time this weekend in the American College Theater Festival competition.

“Winning this year’s National Student Playwriting Award is a huge honor,” said John Boulanger, theater graduate student. “One that I’m not quite sure has fully sunk in yet. I am still dumbfounded when I recall some of the names of past winners.”

Texas State hosted the Annual Region VI American College Theater Festival in February. Boulanger’s play, “House of Several Stories,” was one of Texas State’s entries in the competition.
