Mary Moody Northen Theatre Opens 40th Anniversary Season with Under Construction

    Mary Moody Northen Theatre, the award-winning producing arm of the St. Edward's University professional theatre training program, kicks off its 40th anniversary season with the play Under Construction by Charles L. Mee.  Directed by David M. Long, the production runs September 27th through October 7th.

      Playwright Mee's breakneck postmodern comedy explores the impossibly broad, messy, changeable and non-linear nature of life in these United States.  Inspired by the art of Norman Rockwell and Jason Rhoads, the theatrical collage juxtaposes 1950s Thanksgiving dinner with the contemporary blogosphere, explores feminism, dancing and the barbershop quartet, and - ultimately - shines a light on the nation's struggle to define the American experience.
     Originally produced by the SITI Company at the 2009 Humana Festival of New American Plays, Mary Moody Northen Theatre's production features guest artists Amy Downing and Greg Holt.
     Performances run Thursday through Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m.  Advance tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors.  Thursday, October 4th, student tickets are $8 with ID.
    The Mary Moody Northen Theatre is located at 3001 South Congress Avenue on the St. Edward's University campus.  For tickets and more information, call (152) 448-8484 or visit www.StEdwards.edu/theatre.
