UCA Theatre students will perform “Three Days of Rain,” the Pulitzer Prize-nominated play by Richard Greenberg, in the Bridges/Larson Theatre in the Snow Fine Arts Building on the University of Central Arkansas campus.

Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Feb. 22-23 and March 1-2 as well as 2 p.m. Feb. 24 and March 3.

The play is directed by UCA Associate Professor of Theatre Chris Fritzges and stars Taylor Fulgham as Walker Janeway and Ned Janeway (Walker’s father) as well as Zoe Allison as Nan Janeway (Walker’s sister) and Lina (Walker and Nan’s mother) and Micah Patterson as Pip Wexler and Theo Wexler (Pip’s father).

The play spans multiple times and uses the cast in multiple roles to explore two events: the design of a famous property in Manhattan during the 1960s and the bequeathal of said property in the mid-’90s.

“It is a bittersweet dramatic love story centered around two intertwined families who are trying to come to terms with their loneliness, happiness, legacies and the damage caused by the untold secrets of their parents,” Fritzges said. “Three characters play the children of two famous architects in the first act set in 1995 and then play their parents in 1960 in the second act.

“This show is a wonderful challenge for our student-actors due to the complexity of the writing and the need for playing two different characters. The students have done amazing work so far, and I’m sure the audience will be moved by this beautiful story.”

Tickets are $10 for the general public and free to UCA students. Tickets are available through UCA Ticket Central located in the box office at Reynolds Performance Hall. Box office hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The general public may purchase tickets online a www.uca.edu/tickets.
