A Dream Play
By August Strindberg
Adapted by Caryl Churchill
Directed by Angela Ledtke
In this modern “Everywoman” play a young woman sets out on a journey in the course of which she encounters life’s wonders, contradictions and absurdities. August Strindberg’s dream world comes alive with fresh, contemporary resonances in this adaptation by leading feminist playwright Caryl Churchill.
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Chad Larabee
On an island where everyone’s in love with someone, but no one’s in love with the someone who loves them back, a castaway may be able to set everything right. Twelfth Night is a classic tale of gender-bending hijinks, mistaken identity, and the quest for true love. “If music be the food of live, play on.”
March 31-April 10
Artistic Director Kate Walat
The Theatre Program’s annual festival of play readings features works written, directed, and performed entirely by students. See some of the freshest writing that UAlbany has to offer, and be a part of the dynamic process of theatre being made, in the kind of creative collaborations at the heart of the American theatre.
