Death without the Advantages

8:00 pm Webster Hall, Studio 3 (G19)

Join us for a reality-bending evening of one-act plays acted and directed by students in the Acting & Directing Studio class. Six very short plays, from a variety of genres and eras, by James McLindon, Samuel Beckett, David Ives, Tennessee Williams, David Henry Hwang, and William Butler Yeats, will be performed by the same ensemble of actors. Each play takes a different look at how we relate to fate -- some funny, some tragic, and some mysterious.
