Night of comedy and tragedy

September, 2010

This September, the Dawson Professional Theatre Program offers the public an opportunity to see two shows back-to-back at very reasonable prices.

The second-year studio productions exemplify the professionalism espoused by the participants of the program and show talent that last year was cloistered from the public eye.

This generation of second-year students are featured first in Michael Cristofer's The Shadow Box, a Pulitzer Prize winner and Tony Award winner for Best Play (1977), now directed by Winston Sutton. The Shadow Box, revolving around three terminally ill patients sharing a cottage at a hospital, delving along with their respective families into the intricacies of love, loss, and the miracle of life, runs Sept. 22 to 25 at 8pm.

The second Studio play is Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, a comedy of manners in which two bachelors, dissatisfied with their respective urban and rural social milieus, forge new identities to pursue their objects of affection. Wilde's play, directed by Steven Lecky, runs Sept. 29 to October 2 at 8pm. Both plays are featured at Dawson College, 2000 Atwater.

The admission for both plays is ‘Pay What You Can’. For ticket and reservations call 514-931-5000.
