USD Theatre Stages Regional Premiere with The Story of Susanna
"It is a play about story, the power of story and the healing power of telling the story right," said Chaya Gordon-Bland, associate professor of theatre and director of "The Story of Susanna." "The play is an evocative and poetic exploration of women’s stories; particularly the challenges, struggles and traumas that women often face. The play roots these issues in outdated and archaic systems and beliefs, and then explores how these issues continue to impact us today. While the play does not shy away from difficult territory, it ultimately leaves us with a beautiful and empowering message of hope, a call to come together in community to heal, restore and renew."
"The Story of Susanna" performs Oct. 24-26 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee performance on Oct. 27 at 2 p.m. in the Arena Theatre on the USD Campus. Tickets ($15 Adults, $12 Senior Citizen [62+], $10 K-12 & non-USD students with ID, and free for USD students with ID) can be purchased in the afternoons (12 – 5 p.m.) starting Oct. 17 at the USD Theatre Box Office or by calling (605) 658-3484; tickets can also be purchased now online at www.usd.edu/theatre.
