NEW DATE!! Theater department presents “Occupy!”

The Department of Theater presents an original play written and directed by lecturer Richard Corley and the students in the cast. The production will debut on Thursday, November 14 at 7:30 p.m. in the Hixon Hall Theater on South Campus. Performances will take place Nov. 14-16 and Nov. 21-23 at 7:30pm.

A series of monologues, dialogues, and testimony, the play seeks to explore what the Occupy Movement was, what it became, and where it is now. How does political action take place today? How do you lead a movement that by its nature is against leaders? What were the short term goals of the Occupy Movement and what are the long-term effects of it? Most of all, who were the young people who made it happen and how did they accomplish what they accomplished in such a short term? 

Through interviews and research, Lake Forest College students have worked with director and writer Richard Corley to create this original and exciting piece of theater.

Tickets are free for the campus community; $3 for non-affiliated students, alumni and senior citizens; $7 for non-affiliated adults. Reserve your seats now at theater@lakeforest.edu. Please include in your email the date you wish to come and the number of seats you require.
