Tickets 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.
