Written in 1934 by Lillian Hellman, The Children’s Hour is a witch-hunt of a drama set in 1930’s America. Two women are unjustly accused. As their lives and sanity spiral out of control, they begin to see the truth behind the accusations. Our production attempts to aim a mirror at the suffering still going on by similar accusations and asks our audiences to reflect on whom and how they love.
Please note: this production will have limited technical and design elements in order to follow CDC and Ball State University COVID guidelines.
THE CHILDREN’S HOUR is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
SHE KILLS MONSTERS: VIRTUAL REALMS
By Qui Nguyen
Directed by Karen Kessler
- October 29-31 at 7:30 pm
- November 1 at 2:30 pm
She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
Please note: the Virtual Realms version is intended to be performed online as a new means to create theater during these new times.
“She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
