Lab Theatre to Present Attempts on Her Life

October 20, 2010

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Illinois Wesleyan University’s School of Theatre Arts will present Martin Crimp’s play Attempts on Her Life, October 28, 29 and 30 at 8 p.m. in the E. Melba Johnson Kirkpatrick Laboratory Theatre (304 E. Graham St., Bloomington).

Tickets will be available through the McPherson Theatre box office beginning October 25. Box office hours are Mondays and Wednesdays through Fridays 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesdays 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. General admission and senior prices are $3, with a $1 discount for students with a valid school ID.

Through 17 seemingly disjointed scenes directed by Ally Moravec, a senior theatre arts major, the cast will struggle to define Anne, a woman that the audience will never meet yet who will serve as the motivation for the entire play. Many questions about the nature of the illusive character Anne will be raised during Moravec’s interpretation.
