Omnium Gatherum | Studio One Theatre


September 30th - October 9th

The issues that divide the characters in Omnium Gatherum sound shockingly timely, their rhetoric painfully familiar. It’s easy to wonder if there’s any hope for the human race to continue to survive at all. History proves that we persist, if only in spite of ourselves, but when do we decide to step off of the perpetual merry-go-round that we’ve created? When do we finally stop blindly spinning long enough to ask ourselves what really matters and what we want our legacy to be? Perhaps the answer lies in Omnium Gatherum.

Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab?

Rockaby | Studio Two Theatre

by Samuel Beckett

Friday, November 21 and Saturday Novmeber 21 at 6 p.m.

Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 22 at 1 p.m.

In Beckett's inimitable way, Rockaby and The End capture humanity a "at the end of a long day." Rockaby is an example of Samuel Beckett's late writing, dubbed by some, his "minimalistic" period. We are asked to experience a lullaby of fractured thought delivered in the cadence of a rocking chair. In this performance poem, thoughts "do not act," they move at the pace of futility.

When his plot goes disastrously wrong, truth and freedom become the pillars that save society.
