Saturday night in front of the best high school drama companies in the state, Framingham High senior Alison Raynor had an excerpt of her play Life Stuff performed by her fellow Framingham High students.
Raynor won first place in the Massachusetts Educational Theatre Guild's Sherwood Collins Playwriting Contest.
Her one-act play was about a high school couple who had broken up, but later re-connect. The conversational play takes place around a coffee table, said Raynor.
Raynor is also the vice president of the Framingham High School Drama Company, which competed in the finals of the state's drama festival.
The state awarded three honorable mentions in the playwriting contest and two of the three were also from Framingham High - seniors Eleanor Doran and Mackenzie Shay. Doran's play was titled Four Weeks to Publish and Shay's was titled Sent.
The other honorable mention was awarded to Leah Cohen of Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.
All three Framingham High students are enrolled in Donna Wresinski's playwriting class.
It's been "quite a year for the class of 2012 in theater," said Wresinski.
The state playwriting contest is open to students in grade 9-12. Students can submit a one-act play, that can not exceed 40 minutes. The script must be written for stage presentation and can not be an adaptation of another author's work.
The students were presented with their awards Saturday night, March 24.
