Sul Ross State University's Theatre Program brings live performance back to the Big Bend with, Failure: A Love Story by Philip Dawkins. Step into 1978 Chicago and follow loves and losses of the Fail Family in this funny and quirky music-filled tale.
"This sweet play touches on loss and how love and family get us through tough times, which is a fitting show for this past year," says Director Eva Gil. "The fun part of this live-radio adaptation is how it showcases our BFA students' talents. We have a Foley artist creating sound effects on the spot every night and five actors creating over twenty characters. It's a whimsical play."
Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors/children (Under 12 years old), and free to SRSU Campus Community (with ID).
Cash or check at door or in advance at the François Fine Arts Building, room 106, on the Sul Ross Campus.
