Enjoy a Show and Your Lunch During UHD's Lunch Time Theatre

Instead of sitting at your desk or heading outside during your lunch hour, consider going to the O'Kane Theater. The University Theatre is pleased to present the Lunch Time Theatre production of The Chairs, by Eugene Ionesco.

This 45-minute play, representing the "theatre of the absurd" genre that was popular in the 1960's, is being directed by UHD drama lecturer and alumni, Luke Fedell.

It tells the story of an old man and woman who have a message they want to deliver to the world. But since they are not very good communicators, they have hired a professional "orator" to do it for them. To listen to the orator, they have invited 225 of their friends (all of whom are 'invisible' on stage).

The orator finally arrives and the 'message' he brings is one you won't soon forget - or remember! So come be a part of the old couple's social gathering as the world arrives to hear this all-important message.

Performance dates for The Chairs, to be presented in O'Kane Theater (N-364), will be from 1 - 1:45 p.m. Monday, Feb. 3 through Friday, Feb. 7.

And remember: it's Lunch Time Theatre, so attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch. Sodas and water will be available for 25 cents. Admission is free and seating is available first-come, first-seated.
