Directed by Zoe Allison

Bridges/Larson Theatre, Snow Fine Arts Center

A lascivious blonde tries every vulgar way she knows to pick up and seduce a decent black youth in a subway car. Failing, she resorts to humiliating him. This breaks the facade of his decency, as he descends to her level for a spitfire fight and decrees that murder of the whites by the blacks “would make us all sane.” She stabs him and, as other whites dispose of his body, primps for her next Black victim.

Free admission. Tickets are required.

THREE DAYS OF RAIN

by Richard Greenberg

Directed by Chris Fritzges

Bridges/Larson Theatre, Snow Fine Arts Center

February 22, 23, March 1, & 2, at 7:30 pm

February 24, & March 3, at 2:00 pm

A year after he disappeared on the day of his father’s funeral, Walker Janeway returns to New York and takes up temporary residence in the unused space where  his father, Ned, and Ned’s late partner, Theo, lived. Walker is joined by his sister, Nan, and Pip, Theo’s son, to hear the reading of Ned’s will. We travel back to 1960, to learn more about who their parents were. Ned, who seems very different from the cold monster the children conjured; the charismatic and putative genius, Theo; and Lena, Walker and Nan’s mother, the delightful, troubled “Southern woman.” In the guise of a love story, we are offered an alternative reading of the sad, unexpectedly romantic family story.

ARMS AND THE MAN

by George Bernard Shaw

Directed by Stacy Pendergraft

Bridges/Larson Theatre, Snow Fine Arts Center

April 12, 13, 19, & 20, at 7:30 pm

April 14, & 21, at  2:00 pm

One of Bernard Shaw’s most glittering comedies, “Arms and the Man” is a burlesque of Victorian attitudes to heroism, war, and empire. In the contrast between Bluntschli, the mercenary soldier, and the brave leader, Sergius, the true nature of valour is revealed. Shaw mocks deluded idealism in Candida, when a young poet becomes infatuated with the wife of a Socialist preacher.
