JULIUS CAESAR

JULIUS CAESAR

By William Shakespeare
Showing in Burg Theatre at Oklahoma City University
October 25-28, 2018

William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar explores the tensions between our public selves. As relevant today as it was 400 years ago, the play challenges us with questions about the limits and boundaries of friendship and asks us what we would be willing to do to follow the path we believe is right. This reimagining of the classic play is set in the same period as the Kennedy assassination, and brings all these questions home in a very American context.


MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY

MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY

By Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon
Showing in the Burg Theatre at Oklahoma City University
December 6-9, 2018

A sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice set two years after the novel ends, MISS BENNET continues the story, only this time with bookish middle-sister Mary as its unlikely heroine. Mary is growing tired of her role as dutiful middle sister in the face of her siblings’ romantic escapades. When the family gathers for Christmas at Pemberley, an unexpected guest sparks Mary’s hopes for independence, an intellectual match, and possibly even love.

“Droll and delicious, MISS BENNET is a charming, confectionary celebration of fan favorite characters from Pride and Prejudice, multi-generationally honoring the legacy of Jane Austen’s humor, playfulness and wit in a warm-spirited holiday theatrical production.” —DCMetroTheaterArts.com

THE WOLVES

THE WOLVES

By Sarah DeLappe
Showing in Burg Theatre at Oklahoma City University
January 31 - February 3, 2019

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.

CRITIC'S PICK! "The scary, exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence emanates from every scene of this uncannily assured first play by Sarah DeLappe." - The New York Times

PICNIC

PICNIC

By William Inge
Showing in Burg Theatre at Oklahoma City University
April 4-7, 2019

The play takes place on Labor Day Weekend in the joint backyards of two middle-aged widows. The one house belongs to Flo Owens, who lives there with her two maturing daughters, Madge and Millie, and a boarder who is a spinster school teacher. The other house belongs to Helen Potts, who lives with her elderly and invalid mother. Into this female atmosphere comes a young man named Hal Carter, whose animal vitality seriously upsets the entire group. Hal is a most interesting character, a child of parents who ignored him, self-conscious of his failings and his position behind the eight ball. Flo is sensitively wary of temptations for her daughters. Madge, bored with being only a beauty, sacrifices her chances for a wealthy marriage for the excitement Hal promises. Her sister, Millie, finds her balance for the first time through the stranger's brief attention. And the spinster is stirred to make an issue out of the dangling courtship that has brightened her life in a dreary, minor way.
