There’s nothing so beautiful as first love. There’s also nothing quite as crazy.

Iola High School’s drama department presents two one-act plays tonight and Friday that explore the lengths young lovers will go in the name of true love.

Presenting a play during a pandemic comes with several challenges, forensics teacher and director Regina Chriestenson said. Performances will be at 7 p.m. at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center.
