THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST written by Oscar Wilde, adapted and directed by Russ Borski
Production dates February 21 - March 3, 2019
"A trivial comedy for serious people" uses humor to play with themes of society, marriage, and relationships in a witty manner. With mistaken identities, plot twists, and madcap action, this production is a classic!

TREE OF OEDIPUS developed by the Idea Theatre in Athens and directed by Michael Mauldin, English Translation by Christina Katsaras
Production dates April 4-14, 2019. A copy of this original, premiere script can be found in the Silver Library and can be read there during regular Silver Library Hours.
This new play developed by the Idea Theatre in Athens is having its American and English language premiere at the CSU Department of Theatre and Dance. It follows the lineage of Oedipus, from Cadmus, the first man and founder of Thebes, through the story of Oedipus' fall and redemption, to the deadly civil war between his sons, and the final battle between Creon and Antigone. Compiled from several ancient Greek tragedies, including The Phoenicians, Oedipus Tyrannus, Oedipus at Colonus, Antigone, and Seven Against Thebes, this sweeping story is told by an ensemble of actors through classical acting, song, dance, vaudeville, clowning, acrobatics, and combat which combine into an exciting theatrical experience. The English translation is by current CSU Theatre major Christina Katsaras.
