VITERBO STUDENTS TO PRESENT WOMEN AND WALLACE DEC. 7–8
LA CROSSE, Wis. – The Viterbo University student production of the dark comedy Women and Wallace will be held in the Fine Arts Center La Croix Black Box Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7 and Saturday, Dec. 8.
Women and Wallace, written by Jonathan Marc Sherman, is the story of a young man’s journey from age six to 18. At age six, he discovers his mother’s body after she commits suicide in the family kitchen. From that point on, Wallace struggles with his lack of trust in women. His mother’s death affects Wallace in profound ways that he doesn’t always understand, and his attempts to have meaningful relationships with women lead to heartbreak, humor, and growth. In the end, he struggles with what will hopefully be a lasting relationship, leaving the audience feeling hopeful for Wallace’s future.
“This piece offers a whirlwind experience that moves from heart-warming to heart-breaking, from serious to silly,” said director Michael Haslanger, a Viterbo senior double-majoring in theatre performance and arts administration. “Running just over an hour, this production provides a wonderful opportunity for the actor and I to focus on developing characterizations and building relationships between the characters.”
Tickets are $8 for general admission seating. For more information, contact the Viterbo University box office at 608-796-3100 or www.viterbo.edu/finearts1.aspx.
