2014-2015 Season

Evie's Waltz
by Carter W. Lewis
September 19, 20, 25, 26, 27 at 7:30 p.m.
September 21 at 2:00 p.m.

The Coe College Department of Theatre is proud to be one of the first colleges in the country to present this timely thriller. Though comic in tone, Evie's Waltz is ultimately a very serious investigation of violence in our schools. Few plays could be more timely considering our national debate about gun control. Coe is fortunate that the playwright, Carter W. Lewis, the author of Golf With Alan ShepardPicasso Does My Maps, and most recently, The Hummingbird Wars,will be on campus for the production.


Tartuffe
by Moliere,
in a translation by Richard Wilbur
November 14, 15, 20, 21, 22 at 7:30 p.m.
November 16 at 2:00 p.m.

A wickedly satirical 17th-century romp by one of the greatest playwrights France ever produced, Tartuffe epitomizes Molière's concern with the hypocrisies of almost any era in civilized human history, and with how the gullible are capable of being duped by society's scoundrels. Richard Wilbur's rhymed verse translation brilliantly captures the spirit of this comic masterpiece.


Pride and Prejudice
by Jon Jory
April 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 at 7:30 p.m.
April 5 at 2:00 p.m.

Jane Austin's timeless classic novel about the romantic entanglements of Mr. and Mrs. Bennett's five daughters springs vividly to life in Jon Jory's highly theatrical adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. There is never a dull moment in the lives of this delightfully eccentric family.
