Tickets for the upcoming Communicating Doors
at The University of Louisiana at Monroe's Black Box Theatre
go on sale Monday, November 10th. Reservations for the comic,
time-traveling mystery, may be made by calling the theatre box
office at 318-342-1414.
Communicating Doors, by Britain's leading comic
playwright Alan Ayckbourn, concerns Phoebe, a young woman of
the future, who is called upon to witness the confession of a
dying old man. He, or rather his accomplice, has killed his two
previous wives. Confronted by the accomplice - who does not wish
others to know of his illegal "activities" - Phoebe
dashes into the closet. She returns from hiding only to find
that the room is now occupied by the old man's long dead second
wife, who is very much alive. So too is his first wife. The three
women travel back and forth in time, trying to prevent the murder
of any one of them.
The ULM production of Communicating Doors features
a unique "alley staging." This seating arrangement
permits a community between actors and audience not otherwise
available in traditional staging. It also restricts the number
of seats available for each performance and requires that latecomers
not be seated under any circumstances.
Performances of Communicating Doors are scheduled
for November 13, 14, 15, and again November 20, 21, and 22. All
curtains are at 7:30 p.m. sharp. Tickets are $8 general admission,
$6 seniors, and $4 children. ULM students, faculty, and staff
free with ID. Reservations may be made by calling 318-342-1414.
Tickets may be picked up at the box office the evening of performance.
Reservations not picked up by 7:15 each evening are released
for resale at that time.
