Centre Stage To Present ‘Bonnets: How Ladies Of Good Breeding Are Induced To Murder’ Starting November 14

Penn State’s Centre Stage will run “Bonnets: How Ladies of Good Breeding are Induced to Murder” at the Pavilion Theatre from November 14 to December 2.

“Bonnets” by Jen Silverman is a “rock n’ roll story of unrequited love — one about lust, another about jealousy — that fall into each other across space and time.” The show, narrated by God, explores love, comedy, and violence as it demonstrates how women of good breeding are induced to murder.

The show is directed by Jenny Lamb, an assistant teaching professor of movement.

“These stories are hundreds of years old, and yet we are still telling the same ones today. History is told by the winners. And women have consistently been the losers,” Lamb said. “I deeply appreciate Jen Silverman authoring a piece of work that turns that narrative on its head and puts the power in the hands of women, using the great tool of comedy to get the message across.”

All evening performances will start at 7:30 p.m. with tickets for $23. Student tickets are $15 and can be found on the Penn State Centre Stage website. Non-Penn State arts and architecture students can sign up for free tickets here.
