“Savages in Limbo” delivers timeless message about human condition

Savages in Limbo, written by John Patrick Shanley and directed by senior Theatre major Dashanyua “Day Day” Robinson, is a timeless play about the human condition, asking whether we can commit to making meaningful changes or just remain in limbo. This Penn State Berks production will be held on September 20 and 21, 2012 at 8:00 p.m. in Perkins Student Center Auditorium.

Savages in Limbo explores the dreams of a group of “regulars” in a seedy Bronx bar—all thirty-two years old—who congregate hoping to find relief from their dreary lives. All have various aspirations; from Denise Savage, who is determined to break free from her sheltered existence, to Linda, a promiscuous acquaintance from high school, who is trying to cling to her boyfriend, Tony. He, however, has decided he wants to start dating “ugly girls.” Meanwhile April, another former classmate who originally wanted to become a nun and go to India, has instead become a slightly unbalanced alcoholic—making her a suitable companion for the bartender, Murk.

General admission is $10. Admission for Penn State faculty and staff with ID is $7. Admission for Penn State students with ID is $3. Free admission will be offered to the first 100 students with ID, at the September 21 show. For more information or to reserve tickets, call the Box Office at 610-396-6371.
