"The Shadow Box"
November 19, 2010

"Greater Tuna"
One of the most produced plays in the United States, "Greater Tuna" is a satirical comedy about the third smallest town in Texas. The play, which features only two performers playing all of the characters, is a look at small-town Southern life and attitudes. It was written by Jason Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard.

"The Shadow Box"
In "The Shadow Box," three tales of individuals battling cancer unfold, at first serially, and then towards the end of each of the play's two acts, simultaneously. Each tale features a person who is dying and surrounded by loved ones. All are trying to face and make sense of death. In 1977, the Broadway production of "The Shadow Box" won the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize in Drama.

Park close to Pritchett Auditorium and come to dinner at your leisure in the Student Center Dining Hall. The play begins at 7:30 pm. in Pritchett.
