It has been a great week if you are a fan of theater. Mamma Mia was in town, NRT is presenting “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, and One Stage Revolution is hosting their first ever One Acts-travaganza! One Stage Revolution, as I have previously mentioned, is a new theater troupe on campus. Their plays deal with many social problems in this world, through a variety of viewpoints. You honestly do not know which character with whom to identify (sort of like Lost!).
They previewed these plays during Cultural Conversations and now (back and better than ever!) they are one huge extravaganza of plays which deal with issues such as these:
- Self image
The plays, however, do not go about these tough subjects in a conventional way. One play, for example (titled Family 2.0), deals with a man who decides to walk into someone else’s life because he is bored of his own. The man then goes on to seduce the other man’s wife, win over the kids, and reduce the old man of the house to the dog of the house. After the responsibilities of the house bear down on him, all he wants to do is run away (again).
So bring your friends and come out to enjoy the show at the Arts building in room 6 tonight at 8 p.m. and tomorrow at 7:30 p.m.!
