News & AnnouncementsTickets Available for Heartbreak House. The play Heartbreak House, written by George Bernard Shaw, will be presented at 8 p.m. Nov. 15-18 in Anderson Theatre. Performed by students and directed by Natalya Baldyga (theatre and dance), the play focuses on what happens when the "good" people -- the educated, intelligent, well-intentioned people with time and money on their hands -- shrink from contact with power and politics and leave the running of the world to the "barbarians." In Shaw's view, the bombs start dropping. Written at the time of World War I, Heartbreak House is a parable with rich language, vivid characters, and paradoxical wit. It is a major play by 1 of the world's most highly regarded playwrights. The play is open to the public, but tickets are required. Tickets may be purchased at the Information Center (x7590). Each Gustavus community member is entitled to 1 free ticket with a campus identification card. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for senior citizens and non-Gustavus students.
