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.

The Women by Clare Boothe Luce

When: 
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 - 8:00pm
Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 8:00pm

Sunday, October 6, 2013 - 2:00pm

Clare Booth Luce was the first American woman appointed to a major ambassadorial post (Italy), as well as a journalist, congresswoman and playwright. She was famous for her acidic wit, and The Women, her much-debated and oft-revived comedy of back-stabbing society women, was the comedic Broadway smash of 1936. The play’s topics - marriage, divorce, friendship, infidelity, gossip and class differences - continue to appeal to audiences today.

When: 
Wednesday, April 3, 2013 - 8:00pm

By Jeff Colangelo
Directed by Josh Kumler

This energetic, meta-theatrical comedy follows the desperate final rehearsal of a new play’s staged reading in the minutes before its only public performance. As the clock ticks down, the Director's sanity shatters in a maelstrom of hilarious despair and the actors find themselves caught in an epic battle of wills between two unstoppable forces.

Josh Kumler is a junior in the Theatre Studies program of the Division of Theatre at SMU; this is his first year as a director in the New Visions, New Voices festival.
