ELSEWHERE THEATRE

Throughout the year, the Department will host a variety of student productions.  

Blue/Orange  by Joe Penhall -- Directed by Jonathan Chambers

Blue/Orange is an Olivier Award-winner for Best New Play in 2001, set in a London psychiatric hospital, Christopher, an enigmatic patient who is scheduled for release, claims to be the son of an African dictator. At first, his story seems the stuff of fantasy; and yet, as the play pushes forward it becomes unnervingly plausible. Simultaneously, Bruce, a psychiatrist trainee, and Robert, his supervisor and a hospital administrator, debate Christopher’s case; though their actions initially seem honest and ethical, it slowly becomes clear that they have little regard for what’s best for Christopher. Throughout this tale of race, madness, and power, the question that swirls is, “Who’s mad, and who’s sane?”

In the Eva Marie Saint Theatre:

January 31 – February 1, 2014 at 8:00pm
Free and open to the public

Detroit ’67  by Dominique Morisseau – Directed by Michelle Mensah
It's 1967 in Detroit. Motown music is getting the party started, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours joint. But when a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, the siblings clash over more much more than the family business. As their pent-up feelings erupt, so does their city, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the '67 riots.

In the Eva Marie Saint Theatre:

April 11 – 12, 2014 at 8:00pm
