Spring LabshowMarch 22, 2017
The Theatre Department will present the Spring 2017 labshow “The Pillowman,” April 6-8, 2017, in the James G. Severns Theatre. The production will be directed by senior theatre major Eva Trunzo.
With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm,”The Pillowman” centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.
Tickets are free and available one week before the show at the Theatre Box Office in the main lobby of Ophelia Parrish building. Because of limited seating, advance tickets are recommended. Tickets must be picked up in person in advance, except for our out of town guests. Reservations for out of town guests only may be made by phone 660-785-4515 and those tickets will be held at the box office until 15 minutes before show time.
