The School of Theater will launch into its mainstage series with the comedic production of “Well” by Lisa Kron.
The work focuses on the character of Lisa, who wants to tell the audience the story of how her mother fought segregation in a Midwest community, but her mother keeps interrupting the play. Memory and reality collide in this contemporary genre-bending comedy about family, community and healing.
The play is as much about the wellbeing of a community as it is about one’s own health. The family stayed in their increasingly black community while others white families moved out in the 50’s and 60’s, because Lisa’s mother wanted her children to group up in an interracial neighborhood.
“Well” runs Oct. 13 through 16 and 20 through 23. All performances are at 8 p.m. at the Forum Theater in the RTV Building. The production is directed by Shelley Delaney, head of the Professional Acting Program.
