Willamette University Theatre Presents "The Diviners"

Willamette University Theatre presents "The Diviners" by Jim Leonard Jr., directed by Guest Director Michael Griggs with Guest Artist Ted deChatelet.

The production begins with a preview on Thursday, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. The show will run Oct. 4 and 5 and Oct 10 through 12 at 8 p.m. Matinees run Oct. 6 and 13 at 2 p.m. and Oct. 10 at 11 a.m.

The play takes place in rural Zion, Indiana, during the depression of the 1930's. It brings together a disturbed young man and an itinerant preacher disenchanted with the hollowness of pious religiosity. Both men struggle with events from their past, until the inner turmoil of one life is fused with the childhood trauma of the other in the play's climax ... "The Diviners is a splendid drama by a playwright with poetic as well as human feeling" - Variety Tickets are $10 for evening shows and $8 for Sunday matinees. Student and senior tickets are $6 for all shows. Preview is half price.
