Wisconsin Lutheran College theatre department opens Beyond Boundaries season with "An Evening of One Acts"

September 25, 2006

MILWAUKEE - The Wisconsin Lutheran College theatre department presents "An Evening of One Acts" September 28-30 at 8 p.m. and October 1 at 3 p.m. The plays which include Susan Glaspell's "Tickless Time" and Alice Gerstenberg's "The Illuminati in Drama Libre" will take place in the Raabe Theatre. The theatre is located in the college's Center for Arts and Performance at 8815 W. Wisconsin Ave. Tickets are $5 adults, $4 seniors, and $2 students. Tickets can be purchased by calling the WLC box office at (414) 443-8802 or online at wlc.edu/arts.

"Tickless Time," written by Susan Glaspell and directed by Wisconsin Lutheran alumna Stacy Lorfeld, tells the story of Ian Joyce, a man who makes a sundial. Joyce and his wife decide to live by the "true" sun time instead of the "mean solar time of Philadelphia." They take the audience on a quest to escape boundaries set by society and live life without clocks.

"The Illuminati in Drama Libre," written by Alice Gerstenberg and directed by Wisconsin Lutheran Professor Jay Sierszyn, is an experiment in abstract art. In this innovative 20th Century play, Gerstenberg uses fragments of conversation and seemingly random subjects to explore drama as satire on Futuristic and Cubist painting.

Since 1996, the Wisconsin Lutheran College Center for Arts and Performance has been providing a comprehensive program of performing and visual arts and educational and community events for students and the people of southeastern Wisconsin.
