The CCU Department of Theatre presents Martin McDonagh’s 2005 Tony Award-nominated hit, The Pillowman, directed by Professor Steve Earnest. This Kafkaesque play centers on the interrogation of a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state regarding the gruesome content of his haunting short stories. Blurring the lines between fact and fiction, truth and storytelling, McDonagh celebrates with dark humor the spellbinding power of narrative and investigates the delicate balance between the freedom of the individual and the security of the state.

Set in turn-of-the-century Sweden and directed by Monica Bell, associate professor of CCU’s Department of Theatre, A Little Night Music is a musical celebration of love. Featuring a gorgeous score infused with humor, warmth and the flavor of a waltz, Stephen Sondheim’s most popular work is ripe with possibilities and passion. Discover love, loss and the complexities of human desire in some of Sondheim’s most stunning melodies including “The Glamorous Life,” “A Weekend in the Country,” and “Send in the Clowns.” Performed with an unforgettable cast of characters, this work of enchantment and mischief is a masterwork of musical comedy.
