A year after her husband’s death in Iraq, Kelly, a young therapist, confronts his identical twin brother, who shows up at her apartment unannounced.  The time shifts between her encounter with her brother-in-law, Peter, and the night before her husband Craig was deployed.  The line between political and personal catastrophe fades as the two time periods collide in a powerful portrayal of loss, loyalty, and grief.

DEAD MAN’S CELL PHONE

by Sarah Ruhl

Black Box Theatre, Snow Fine Arts Center

February 11, 12, 18, & 19, at 7:30 pm

February 13, at 2:00 pm

An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man—with a lot of loose ends. This is the beginning of a work about how we memorialize the dead, how that remembering changes us, and it is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.

A WINTER’S TALE

by William Shakespeare

Bridges/Larson Theatre, Snow Fine Arts Center

April 7, 8, 14, 15, at 7:30 pm

April 9, at  2:00 pm

In one of Shakespeare’s very last plays, the worlds of tragedy and comedy meet in a tale of terrible wintry darkness and warm springtime romance. With its enduring and universal themes of love, friendship, jealousy, betrayal, illusion, death, and redemption, the play is a beautiful mysterious experience, richly contributing to Shakespeare’s reputation as the greatest dramatic poet of all time.
