|The Way of the World|
The Way of the World is generally viewed as the supreme example of Restoration Comedy. Its characters—the vengeful and ultimately pathetic Lady Wishfort, the sparring lovers Mirabell and Millamant, the dark and devious Marwood plot and double-cross each other in the pursuit of love and money. In the end, all get their just desserts.
Directed by David Ledoux
Performed at the SOPAC on Oct. 22, 23, 24 at 8 p.m. and Oct. 25, at 2 p.m.
|The Good Doctor |
By Neil Simon
This Broadway hit is a
composite of Neil Simon and Anton Chekhov. In one sketch a feisty old woman
storms a bank and upbraids the manager for his gout and lack of money. In
another, a father takes his son to a house where he will be initiated into the
mysteries of sex, only to relent at the last moment and leave the boy more
perplexed than ever. In another sketch, a crafty seducer goes to work on a
wedded woman, only to realize that the woman has been in command from the first
overture. Let us not forget the classic tale of a man who offers to drown himself
for three rubles. The stories are droll, the portraits affectionate, the humor
infectious and the fun unending.
Student Directed by Frank Borrelli under the Faculty Mentorship of Crystal Dickinson
Performed in the Theatre-in-the-Round on the SHU campus on December 10-12 at 8 p.m. and December 13 at 2 p.m.
