WC Presents Duchamp Redux September 29, 30 and October 1
Chestertown, MD, September 15, 2005 — Washington College's Drama Department presents its first show of the Fall 2005 season, Duchamp Redux: an Ersatz Neo-Futurist Production,directed by Professor Dale Daigle, September 29 and 30 at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., and October 1 at 8 p.m., in the College's Tawes Theatre. Tickets are $5.00 per person and proceeds will be sent to the American Red Cross for its Katrina Disaster Relief program. For ticket reservations and information, call 410-778-7835 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following the production format of Chicago's Neo-Futurist dramatic ensemble, 25 actors will tackle the performance of 30 plays in 60 minutes, allowing the audience to decide the arrangement of the plays. If the actors fail in their mission, the audience will get their money back as well as free pizza. Breaking down the fourth wall of conventional theater, Duchamp Redux will challenge audience members through intense audience/actor interaction, non-traditional characters, and a vast array of controversial topics.
Drama Professor Daigle warns, "We promise to make you laugh and—unless your skin is fairly thick—offend you to some point, as well. You won't want to miss it."
