    InFocus OUTDOORS:  the HAYWAGON STAGE

    For the 2018-19 season, the Theatre Company is changing its format.  Instead of producing all of our projects in the Arena Theater, we are adding an outdoor performance venue:  the HAYWAGON STAGE.  A wide variety of events will happen at this new, temporary space:  concerts, performance art installations, social gatherings, micro-plays and more.  Many will POP-UP as a surprise!  All of the events—no matter the style or artistic medium—will deal with a central theme: the College’s annual IN-Focus theme, which for 2018-19 is “War, Peace-Building, and the Just Society.” Departments from across campus will be contributing to the activities on the HAYWAGON STAGE, so it is sure to be a diverse line-up of events.  And the stage itself—built on an old hay wagon—will be transforming over the course of the year. Be sure to stop by the HAYWAGON STAGE often.  You never know what might pop up!

    LOCATION: the academic quad, across from Reeves Library

    TIMES: TBA—check website moravian.edu/theatre for updates

    ALL HAYWAGON STAGE EVENTS ARE FREE

    Truth//Delusion

    Written and directed by Matt Hogan

    Part of the Friday Night Play Reading Series

    A theatrical double-feature! Join us for a reading of two student-written one-act plays in contrasting styles. The reading features both comedy and tragedy, and calls for audience feedback to determine the fate of the characters. The plays explore the concept of a shared reality through the lens of characters who, like so many people, live with incompatible roommates and desperately yearn for dramatic change. These are scripts in development, and the audience is encouraged to stay after the reading and give feedback.

    Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

    By Tom Stoppard

    Directed by Kayleigh Ficarra

    “What if we are all just characters in a play?” In this absurdist tragicomedy from Tom Stoppard, featuring themes of existence and free will, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern ask a lot of questions… but that one always seems to elude them. This play depicts the events of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” from the point of view of two of its minor characters as they wrestle with life’s great questions (meaning of life, and such), and more basic questions (“Rosencrantz?” “Guildenstern?” Which one of us is which?) Experience with Shakespeare optional.
