By Jean Anouilh

Adapted and translated by Lewis Galantiere

Directed by Jim Lile

Sept 27-30, 2017 7:30 pm

[G] Bud Walton Theatre

Jean Anouilh's version of Sophocles' timeless play was born in Paris during Nazi occupation.  The collision of personal convicition with government mandate resonated with Anouilh's audience and, through Lewis Galantiere's translation, continues to echo in our time.  After the opening of Katharine Cornell's original American production in 1946, Helen Keller commented, "This play is a parable of humanity.  It has no time or space."

For audience comfort and security, children under 5 will not be admitted to general admission performances.

For Reservations, please call 417-625-3190 starting Sept 18, 2017.
