Theatre Department presents original play Black Ice
The Penn State Berks Theatre department will present Black Ice, an original play written by Associate Professor of Theatre Arts Cleo House Jr., and directed by Radhica Ganapathy, Assistant Professor of Theatre, November 1–4, 8–11, at 8 p.m.; Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium.
The play takes place during the “blizzard of the decade” in a small Texas town. A stranger named Jacob knocks on the door of a worn trailer home owned by Alice, an elderly woman. He pleads for her to give him shelter from the freezing weather. Jacob is in town on a mission to find his missing sister, and Alice has every intention of helping the tattooed stranger. But as they get to know each other, Alice realizes that Jacob’s past appears to be intertwined with her own. The audience unravels the mystery as the characters solve the puzzle, and it becomes clear that Jacob’s arrival was no accident. This psychological thriller proves that you can’t always judge a book by its cover.
Tickets cost $10 for general Admission; $7, Faculty/Staff; and $5 Penn State students with ID. To order tickets, call the Box Office at 610-396-6371 or e-mail BerksTheatre@psu.edu.
