Saint Martin’s University presents “An Evening Of One-Act Plays”
Sept. 19, 2005
Lacey – The Saint Martin’s University department of
theatre arts will present “An Evening of One-Act Plays” from Oct. 11-15
at the university’s Kreielsheimer Arts Education Building, 5300 Pacific
Three plays are being performed: “Variations on the
Death of Trotsky” and “Universal Language” both by David Ives, and “The
Feast” by Daniel Wright. Performances start at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are at
the door and are $10; $6 for students and seniors. A pay-what-you-will
performance will be given Wednesday, Oct. 12.
- “Variations on The Death of Trotsky”
imagines the famous Russian revolutionary on the day of his murder,
desperately trying to cope with the mountain-climber’s axe he’s
discovered in his head, said David Hlavsa, who chairs the department of
- “The Feast” revolves around two
construction workers celebrating the richness and mourning the
transience of their lives.
- “Universal Language” brings together Dawn,
a young woman with a stutter, and Don, the creator and teacher of
Unamunda, a wild comic language. Their lesson sends them off into a
dazzling display of hysterical verbal pyrotechnics—and, of course, true
love, Hlavsa said.
