LA CROSSE, Wis. - The Viterbo University Theatre Department will present a staged reading of the play Anatomy of Gray in the La Croix Black Box Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1 to Saturday, Feb. 3.

Anatomy of Gray is a play that looks at the effect fear plays in our daily lives and our reaction to it, specifically when we’re confronted with the unknown and our mortality,” said director Rick Walters, chair of the theatre department. “But despite dealing with the fight for survival and going on in the face of adversity, the play has a very hopeful spirit.”

The author of the play, Jim Leonard, wrote it in response to his friend’s death from AIDS. It is being produced as a staged reading by the Viterbo theatre department, which places an emphasis on the actors, the lighting, and sound effects, Walters said.

The cast consists of nine Viterbo students, with music professor Jean Saladino handling the music, and Chris Scheuermann of the Fine Arts Center putting together the sound track.

“I think it will be very interesting for audiences to come and see a very simply produced piece of theatre,” Walters said. “This is theatre at its essence.”

Tickets are $8. For more information contact the Viterbo University box office at 608-796-3100 or
