ODU THEATRE DEPARTMENT PRESENTS "RASHOMON" FEB. 15-23
The Old Dominion University Theatre stage will be transformed into a 12th-century Japanese jungle for performances of Michael and Fay Kanin's mystery, "Rashomon," Feb. 15-23.
Directed by Konrad Winters and presented by the ODU theatre department, "Rashomon" explores the nature of truth. After the gruesome murder of a man and brutal rape of his wife, four witnesses are called to recount the facts. Based on the award-winning Kurosaswa film, "Rashomon" is performed in a historically accurate but magically realistic style. Audiences will be transported in time on a journey that ends when the mystery is solved and the shocking truth revealed.
"Rashomon" can be enjoyed by audiences age 13 and older. Tickets are $10 for students and $15 for general admission. They may be purchased in advance at the Arts and Letters box office, located in the lobby of the University Theatre, or by calling 683-5305. Tickets are also available at the door one hour before each performance.
Performances begin at 8:00 p.m. Feb. 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23. Matinee performances begin at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 16 and 23.
Group rates are available by contacting Ashley Walden at 683-3608 or email@example.com. The University Theatre is located on Hampton Boulevard between 46th and 47th streets. Parking is available in the 45th Street Garage.
