The Perfect Plan

It’s the night before the big paper is due. All that can be heard is the incessant ticking of the clock. Tick, tick, tick. The cursor blinks wildly on a predominantly white screen, with only a name, date and course number typed up in the upper right corner. Maybe starting the 10-page term paper at […]

DCD: Killer sweets, sour music

Saturday, Sept. 8 The Quad 12:30 p.m. I was abruptly awoken late Saturday morning by the subdued sound of the doorbell. Since it was my neighbor who was loyally abiding by his promise to accompany me to Fall Fest that day, I decided to actually get out of bed and get dressed. I also dragged […]

Comic fusion of sci-fi romance

When you think of romantic comedies, you don’t usually think of sci-fi movies. But with Happy Accidents (IFC Films), writer and director Brad Anderson merges the two genres. The result is an eccentric but thoughtfully engaging and entertaining movie. Marisa Tomei plays Ruby Weaver, a co-dependent telephone directory operator who seems to attract an endless […]

Staff Editorial: Delay meeting, protests

We cannot allow terrorism to alter our regular lives. We cannot cower and cannot be afraid to go about our normal routines – to go to class, fly home on breaks or continue to experience all D.C. has to offer.

A low rumble of thunder escapes from the depths of the Arena Stage and mixes with an ominous blue light that captures the audience during the opening scene of Kenneth Cavander’s “Agamemnon and His Daughters.” The light refuses to relinquish the audience’s attention until the final scene of the nearly three hour production.

But the recent decision by the University to shut down for five days during the planned demonstrations and Monday’s Hatchet staff editorial (“Closing campus”) citing “protester violence” as a reason to […]

Vignettes form dark, fluid story

What can be said about a play that rarely feels like a play? “Race of the Ark Tattoo” is an incredible cross between a garage sale and an interactive performance art piece. It blurs many lines with only one “character,” a narrative so incredibly loose that it could more safely be called a collection of […]

Op-Ed: Terrorist attack disrupts GW campus

On my way to class this morning, I was painfully aware of the two armed soldiers parked on every corner from my room to campus. In light of yesterday’s tragedy, I know these men are here for our safety, but at the same time, my worst nightmare has been realized. Our generation has never lived […]

King enters ‘Black House”

Thirteen years ago, Detective Jack Sawyer appeared in Stephen King and Peter Straub’s “The Talisman.” The authors have joined forces once again to pen the newest adventures of the hero of their first collaboration. “Black House” takes place 20 years after “The Talisman.” The journey begins in French Landing, Wis. All is not well: the […]
