"This play hurls one of Greek tragedy’s most compelling sagas into a sleek netherworld of sex, drugs and trance music. Iphigenia is the daughter of a political celebrity who embraces sensuous excess with a transgendered glam rock star named Achilles in a desperate attempt to flee her inevitable fate.

“Iphigenia…a rave fable, through the use of videotaped and live streaming images, performs the mediated culture of simulacra of global capitalism, where the body, especially the female body, is objectified to the point that the boundaries between the “real” and the mediated are blurred.”
Lillian Manzor on Caridad Svich in Oxford Encyclopedia of Latinos and Latinas in the United States. Volume 1. (pp. 186)"

THE SEAGULL
by Anton Chekhov
Translated by Tom Stoppard

The Seagull, by Russian dramatist Anton Chekhov, was written in 1895 and is considered to be the first of his four major works. Set in a bohemian estate of a bygone era, romantic and artistic conflict grow between four characters:  a famous middle-of-the-road author; the wistful and unworldly Nina; a has-been actress Irina Arkadina; and her son, Constantine, the emblematic playwright.  The Seagull can be as much a heartbreaking romance where its characters struggle to remember, forget, and move on from the past as it is a satirical comedy, indulging in the melodramatic and elite world of trivialities and self-delusion.

“The Seagull (Stoppard, trans.)” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com

 

 

Scotland Road


November 10-12 • 7:30 pm
November 13 • 3 pm
Moore Theatre

Written by Jeffrey Hatcher
Directed by Susan Anthony

In the current day, a young woman, dressed in clothes of the early 20th century, is found alone on an iceberg.  She is terrified and confused and utters only one word:  “Titanic.” She is brought to a makeshift hospital and interrogated by a man determined to break her story--and force her to admit that she’s a publicity-seeking fraud. But as the interrogation intensifies, so does the mystery, and characters reveal devastating secrets. Everyone’s identity is suspect; no one is as they seem.  Award winning play Scotland Road is described as a “gripping and relentless,” a “Gothic psychological thriller.”

You’ve seen the movie.   You may have seen the stage play.  Poor Frank-N-Furter just wants love, but it’s not easy for an alien mad scientist trans-sexual from Transylvania to find it here in the heartland; however, after a nine year hiatus, welcome the return wholesome couple Brad and Janet, Magenta, Riff Raff, Columbia, Eddie, Dr. Scott, local musicians, plenty of University and Greencastle talent, and one build-it-yourself man kit named Rocky, as alien beings once again invade Moore theatre with plenty of good old fashioned gratuitous sex,  heartbreak, and violence.  As Magenta cautions us, we’ll always want “More! More!!  More!!!”   We promise our resident intimacy coach will be stretched to the max in this rendition of Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show.   So lace up your fishnets and heels, and join us for what promises to be a raucous good time!
