Play Along

There’s no such thing as over play as Dyson Performing Arts presents A Night of One Acts on January 30–February 3, followed by Pace at La MaMa on February 1–3 and 8–10.

The fun begins with a menage a trois and media and politics in a post-war country on January 30 as Performing Arts student kick off A Night of One Acts featuring Maria Irene Fornes’ Mud, directed by Dyson student Ellise Lesser, and Guillem Clua’s Skin in Flames, directed by Dyson student Lisa Klages, in the Schaeberle Studio Theater. Shows will be held on January 30–February 3 at 8:00 p.m. For information or reservations, e-mail

Then, movin’ on up to the Lower East Side, as Pace returns to La MaMa experimental theater to take on one of the most influential writers of the 20th century, Samuel Beckett, and his broad-ranging plays from a man about to jump out of a window to eternal life, at the Four Beckett Shorts showcase on February 1–3 and 8–10. Performing four of the Nobel Prize-winning  novelist, playwright, theatre director, and poet’s works—Play, Ohio Impromptu, Come and Go, and Rough for Theatre II—shorts will be directed by Dyson professors Grant Kretchik, Ruis Woertendyke, and Annie G. Levy, and Dyson student Chad Chenail. Play confronts anonymity in eternal life. For more information on each of the shorts and to purchase $10 tickets, click here.
