SATURDAY, OCT 4 at 9:30 PM and SUNDAY, OCT 5 @ 5:30 PM
Bentley Theater - FREE ADMISSION

Student Producers: Ariel Klein '17 and Naomi Lazar '17

Student actors from the Displaced Theater Company collaborate to write and rehearse a 30-play show. All 30 original plays will be presented in 60 minutes -- and the audience chooses the order of the plays each night! (The concept for the show comes from a theater company in Chicago called "The Neofuurists.")

Fall MainStage Production: IN THE NEXT ROOM (or the vibrator play) by Sarah Ruhl

Directed by Jamie Horton

Set Design by Georgi Alexi-Meskhishvili
Costume Design by Laurie Churba Kohn
Lighting Design by Dan Kotlowitz
Sound Design and Original Music by David Remedios
Stage Management by Margot Yecies '15

Set in the late 19th century but with a very contemporary feel, this gem of a play (Tony Award nominee for Best Play in 2010) is both funny and touching. Ruhl "illuminates with a light touch—a soft, flickering light rather than a moralizing glare—how much control men had over women's lives, bodies and thoughts, even their most intimate sensations" (The New York Times). Contains adult themes.

Moore Theater/November 7, 8, 13 14, 15 at 8 PM; November 9 and 16 at 2 PM

$12 General Public/$5 D-Students/$10 Other Students; Tickets on sale at the HOP BOX OFFICE (for tickets click HERE).
