When 26-year-old Marisol Perez is attacked on the subway and rescued by a guardian angel, we are introduced to a world gone wild where food is scarce, pollution is plentiful and violence rules. On her journey, Marisol meets a series of bizarre characters, including a homeless man in a wheelchair in search of his lost skin and a woman beaten by police because she exceeded her credit card limit. Backstage describes this “thrill ride” as both darkly humorous and a commentary on social injustice that is “consistently fascinating.”

Welcome to Middletown, where you can eavesdrop on the kind of conversations and insights usually left unsaid. Inspired by Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, Eno provides a twist by having the villagers reveal their innermost fears and piercing life observations as if they were ordinary tidbits of conversation. The play unfolds in a series of vignettes depicting encounters between seemingly unexceptional people that are surprisingly thought-provoking.

Four friends in their late thirties face the trials and tribulations of major life events with an eye toward quickly approaching middle-age. Playwright Melissa Gibson plays games with viewers’ thoughts and expectations through a combination of wit and melancholy comedy. “The play’s delicate pace, richly patterned wordplay and undercurrent of rue combine to cast a moving spell that lingers in the memory, like a sad-sweet pop song whose chorus you can’t shake,” says The New York Times.

Moscow, March 1985. The last of the U.S.S.R. Another dark, funny, often vaudevillian fantasia from Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner, the celebrated author of Angels in America and, most recently, the screenplay for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. Here the slapstick and the lunatic combine, in the words of critic Vincent Canby, to ask those age-old questions about good and evil, justice and its miscarriage – and what is to be done about them. Directed by Rhonda Blair, professor in the Division of Theatre.

Price: 

$13 for adults, $10 for seniors, $7 for students, faculty & staff
