ODU Theatre and CORE Theatre Ensemble Present "Brave New World"

Old Dominion University Theater joins the CORE Theatre Ensemble this month for an original adaptation of Aldous Huxley's controversial novel, "Brave New World," a story of sex, drugs and subliminal suggestion.

Huxley's startling vision of society's possible future shed a harsh light on the present in his 1932 novel about paradise-engineering gone wrong. From the harsh post-apocalyptic reservation to the predestined, predetermined society of the new world, what is left of humanity? In the technologically advanced society in which people are engineered to be born as members of one of five different castes, is there any room for the individual?

Final performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28, Friday, Jan. 29, and Saturday, Jan. 30.

Tickets, $10 for students and $15 for general admission, may be purchased in advance at the Arts and Letters box office, located in the University Theatre lobby, or by calling 683-5305. The box office is open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets also are available at the door one hour before each performance.

The University Theatre is located on Hampton Boulevard between 46th and 47th streets. Free parking is available in the 45th Street garage. Metered street parking is also available.

A review of "Brave New World" appeared in a recent edition of AltDaily.
