VITERBO THEATRE PRODUCES UNDER MILK WOOD IN BLACK BOX NOV. 13-15

LA CROSSE, Wis.­Join in a moving account of a spring day in Llareggub, a small Welsh coastal town, as Viterbo presents under milk wood Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 13-15 and Nov. 20-22, in the La Croix Black Box Theatre.

A dark, yet moving comedy about beauty, love, and human failings, under milk wood examines what it truly means to be alive.  Originally written by Dylan Thomas for radio, under milk wood is structured as a series of vignettes, linked by a narrator. It is a play for voices, where each actor takes on a number of different roles.  This poetic glimpse into the life of the inhabitants of Llareggub recalls intimate dreams and uses earthy prose, verse, and song to bring about the humanity of each character by looking at their lives from dawn to dusk for one day.

With a combination of humor, sadness, and beauty, the audience is able to see each character and their flaws for what they truly are and, in the end, realize that, although these people make mistakes, they are divinely human and, therefore, merit forgiveness.

Show times are at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 13-15 and Nov. 20-22.  Tickets are $9.  For more information, contact the Viterbo University Box Office at 608-796-3100.
