For Whom The Southern Belle Tolls

Fall, 2017
Written By: Christopher Durang
Directed By: Meredyth Albright

In this one-act parody of THE GLASS MENAGERIE, the fading Southern belle, Amanda, tries to prepare her hyper-sensitive, hypochondriacal son, Lawrence, for "the feminine caller." Terrified of people, Lawrence plays with his collection of glass cocktail stirrers. Ginny, the feminine caller, is hard of hearing and overbearingly friendly. Brother Tom wants to go the movies, where he keeps meeting sailors who need to be put up in his room. Amanda tries to face everything with "charm and vivacity," but sometimes she just wants to hit somebody. "If you need a break from serious drama, the place to go is Christopher Durang's silly, funny, over-the-top sketches..." —TheaterWeek. Shows are in Brody Theater in the Branson building on East Campus. Performances at 11pm on August 25 and 26; 8:00pm on September 1 and 2 Free pre-show pizza in the lobby!
