A STUDENT. A CHORUS. A WAR.
A chorus of students, all alike and all unalike, are trying like the devil to tell a simple story—perhaps the story about the tragedy of the Sandwich Man, with sandwich boards upon which nothing is written, and hence, say nothing. Wellman’s examination of the post-9/11 world and America’s general and genial acceptance of the Iraq war.
The Invention of Tragedy features The Bats including Drita Kanashi, Mirra Kardonne, Macy Lanceta, Susan Ly, Alice Marcondes, Madelyn Rose Robinson, Ana Semedo, and Sarah Alice Shull.
The creative team includes Christopher Swader and Justin Swader (Scenic Designers), Alice Tavener (Costume Designer), Brian Alduous (Lighting Designer), Espii Procter (Sound Designer), Chanon Judson (Chroeographer), Michael Cassedy (Composer), Haley Gordon (Stage Manager), and Ran Xia (Assistant Director).
Student rush tickets are available 10 minutes prior to curtain for $10, based on availability and with a valid student ID. (Student rush is available for Flea produced shows only.)
