- WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT by Nassim Soleimanpour
- Mitchell Theatre February 18-March 6 (Thu-Fri 7:30 PM, Sat 6:00 PM and 8:30 PM)
- No rehearsal. No director. A different actor each night. A script waiting in a sealed envelope on stage. Performed all over the world since its premiere in 2011, “White Rabbit, Red Rabbit” by Iranian writer Nassim Soleimanpour, is an audacious theatrical experiment and a potent reminder of the power of theatre to break boundaries and connect us all.
- Theatre and Drama Faculty and Staff will be selecting advanced students as performers for this unique opportunity.
- THE GOOD BODY by Eve Ensler – A ZOOM PRODUCTION
- Streaming March 19-26. More information regarding access coming soon.
- Director: Audrey Lauren Wax
- With THE GOOD BODY, Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues, turns her unique eye to the rest of the female form. Whether undergoing botox injections or living beneath burqas, women of all cultures and backgrounds feel compelled to change the way they look in order to fit in. THE GOOD BODY merges cross-cultural explorations with Eve’s own personal journey coming to terms with her “less-than-flat, post-forties stomach.”
- SONNETS FOR AN OLD CENTURY by José Rivera
- Mitchell Theatre April 15-25 (Thursday-Saturday 7:30 PM, Sunday 2:00 PM)
- Director: Mark H.
- Could you tell your life story in the space of a moment – the length of a sonnet? Trapped between life and afterlife, people attempt to give voice to the meaning of their existence. Called a Spoon River Anthology and Our Town for this generation, José Rivera’s compelling series of monologues convey a kaleidoscope of expressions on what it means to be alive.
