The Old Dominion University Theatre will present the area premiere of campus playwright Brian Silberman's drama, "Manifest," Nov. 8-17 in the Stables Theatre, 46th Street and Monarch Way, Norfolk.

Under the direction of Christopher Hanna and set to the live music of a three-piece Klezmer band, the production will theatricalize events of the Holocaust and Nazi concentration camp atrocities in ways that are uncharacteristically daring and entertaining.

Silberman's play, which he describes as "Holocaust Vaudeville," asks audiences to reconsider the legacy of the Holocaust, redefining its victims as heroes. The play interweaves many stories, including those of brave love, attempted rebellion and daily diversions of children surviving medically inflicted deformities.

Show times are 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for non-ODU students and groups and $5 for Old Dominion students with identification. Call 683-5305 for tickets and further information.
