“The Lily of My Dreams,” an original student-written play penned by at Searsport District High School sophomore Genevieve Shepard, will be presented this weekend at the Maine Young Playwright Festival at Bonny Eagle High School, 700 Saco Road.

In the short play, a woman in a portrait comes to life in a young man’s apartment. The student troupe premiered the work last weekend at SDHS.

The inaugural Maine Young Playwright Festival performances will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door, $5 for adults and $3 for students.
