Theatre Season Closes with 'Fefu and Her Friends'... Just in time for Mother's Day, the Department of Theatre and Dance at Gustavus Adolphus College completes its 2007-08 season with Fefu & Her Friends, a look into the complexities of women's lives and relationships written by Maria Irene Fornes in 1977. This production of Fefu features a cast of eight diverse women brought together by Director Amy Seham.
     In the play, Fefu's friends gather at her home for a meeting that becomes increasingly complex and mysterious. After viewing the first act on the Anderson stage, audience members travel deeper into the women's lives, physically as well as emotionally, as they split into four groups and are guided to four separate areas, moving from scene to scene until everyone has seen each scene. All will then join up for the dramatic conclusion, back on the Anderson stage.
     Performances of Fefu & Her Friends are scheduled for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, May 8, 9, and 10, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, May 11, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and free for Gustavus students, faculty, and staff, and may be purchased at the Gustavus Ticket Center/Information Desk in the Jackson Campus Center or by calling the Ticket Center at 507-933-7590.
