During its 2004-2005 season, University Theatre will produce Medea by Euripides, Woyzeck by Georg Buchner, The House of Blue Leaves by John Guare, Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare, and a yet-to-be determined contemporary American drama.
Opening in October, Medea is the classic Greek story about the jealousy and revenge of a woman betrayed by her husband. Woyzeck tells the story of a common soldier with irony and compassion. The House of Blue Leaves is a farce about a late-middle-aged zoo attendant who still has lingering visions of being a songwriter and the antics of one day, when the pope makes his first visit to New York. Shakespeares comedy Much Ado About Nothing tells the story of young lovers Hero and Claudio conspiring to get verbal sparing partners Benedick and Beatrice to wed as well. Meanwhile, the evil Don Jon conspires to break up the wedding.
Season tickets will go on sale in late July or early August. For information, call 472-2072.
