Season not over yet at Mesa Experimental Theatre
The stage is not yet empty at the Mesa Experimental Theatre.
Although Mesa State College’s graduation is Saturday, May 15, two short plays take the stage together at the Experimental Theatre (Black Box) from Thursday through Saturday, May 20–22.
Graduating senior Janet Kelleher will direct both plays.
The first show is Edward Albee’s “The Zoo Story,” and the second short play is Woody Allen’s “Riverside Drive.”
A cast of three Mesa State actors will star in both plays. Each play looks at urban isolation in New York City. Albee’s play details a chilling encounter between two strangers in Central Park. Allen’s play is set in Upper West Side Manhattan.
They are rated PG-13 for adult situations and language.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $5 for students. Tickets are available at Moss Performing Arts Center, 1231 N. 12th St.
Tickets are only available before the performances because the box office is closed for the summer. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. prior to each performance. Performances begin at 7:30.
