Diana

THEATRE DEPARTMENT PRESENTS DIANA OF DOBSON'S

The Department of Theatre and Film presents Diana of Dobson's, Cecily Hamilton's Edwardian comedy of manners Nov. 16-19 in the Thomas B. and Kathleen M. Donnell Theatre in The Wolfe Center for the Arts. 

When London department store employee Diana comes into an unexpected sum of money, she fulfills her dream of vacationing abroad. Posing as a wealthy widow, she attracts the romantic attentions of Captain Bretherton, a fellow traveler she meets in Switzerland.  Are his affections genuine, or are he and his aunt merely after Diana's supposed fortune? Diana of Dobson's explores this question as well as ones regarding the limited options available to working-class women in the early 20th century, in a style that mixes the witty intelligence of George Bernard Shaw with elements of classic romantic comedy. 

Performances are Nov. 16-18 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 18-19 at 2 p.m. Tickets purchased in advance are $5 for students, $10 for seniors and $15 for adults. All tickets are $20 if purchased on the day of performance .
