THEATRE TO PRESENT STAGED READING
The Concordia College Theatre Department will present a staged reading as part of the 2013 Faith, Reason and World Affairs Symposium at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9, on the main stage of Frances Frazier Comstock Theatre. Dr. Jennifer Thomas, assistant professor, Communication Studies and Theatre Art, will direct the reading of
“Three Sisters” by Anton Chekov.
Inspired by the Brontë sisters, “Three Sisters” follows siblings who live in a provincial town, but have dreams of returning to the culture of the big city. They pin their hopes for happiness and living a good life on moving back to the city, something that never materializes.
The reading is presented by the theatre department in conjunction with the symposium “Happiness: Living the Good Life.” Most events for the symposium, Sept. 10-11, take place in Memorial Auditorium.
The reading and the symposium are free and open to the public.
