Announcing our 2013-2014 THEATER SEASON & FILM SERIES!
Fall 2013 kicks off in early September with the Seventh Annual TFMS Film Series -- Toil & Trouble: The Reel History of Working Women. Where do we find the history of women's work? Canadian documentarians Caroline Martel (“The Phantom of the Operator,” September 9) and Maya Gallus (”Dish: Women, Waitressing, & the Art of Service,” October 7), as well as Academy Award-nominated U.S. filmmaker Connie Field (“The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter,” November 11), will present work that addresses the elusiveness of that history by making women's labor visible and documenting their behind-the-scenes struggle on behalf of the workforce and workers' rights. This year's FILM SERIES focuses untold and under-represented stories and gives voice to these marginalized factions from feminist and labor histories. The series lasts through fall semester, with screenings on Monday, September 9, October 7, and November 11; screenings begin at 8:15 p.m. in Cole Cinema, Campus Center, and are free and open to the public.
Opening on October 24 in the Bruce Davis Theater, Clare Bayley’s The Container, directed by Michael Ellis-Tolaydo, tells a searing story of what drives five immigrants from their homelands in Africa and the Middle East as they desperately try to smuggle themselves into England in a shipping container on a truck located somewhere in Europe. THE CONTAINER performs over two weeks, October 24-November 3.
The Bruce Davis Theater presents two shows in spring 2014: Encounters: A Performance of Spoken Word, Dance, and Music, directed by Leonard Cruz, opens on February 26 for a five-show run; and Shakespeare in Hollywood, Ken Ludwig’s uproarious farce that plunks the Bard’s most famous fairies, Oberon and Puck, in the middle of a Warner Bros. Hollywood production of, what else?, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, caps off the main stage season with an eight-show run, opening on April 17. This silly, but smart and sophisticated, comedy is directed by Holly A. Blumner.
To reserve tickets for each of the main stage shows, contact the Theater Box Office at 240-895-4243 (ext. 4243), or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Ticket prices are $4 or $6, general admission.
