Schreiner theatre department to present Albee

The Schreiner University theatre department will present Edward Albee’s 1961 one-act play “The American Dream” at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 1-3, in the Hanszen Fine Arts Studio Theatre on the Schreiner campus. The production is directed by Zach Salcich, whom local theatergoers will recognize from his excellent work as an actor in such shows as “Sleeping Beauty” at The Point Theatre and “Arsenic and Old Lace” with Playhouse 2000.
 
Admission is free; however, seating is limited. Goodwill donations are appreciated.
 
Albee wrote “The American Dream” early in his career, the year before he wrote “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and years before his three Pulitzer Prize winning plays “A Delicate Balance,” “Seascape” and “Three Tall Women.” In his preface to “The American Dream,” Albee describes it as “…an examination of the American Scene, an attack on the substitution of artificial for real values in our society…a stand against the fiction that everything in this slipping land of ours is peachy-keen.”
 
For more information about this production, call or e-mail Dr. Claudia Sullivan, professor of communication and theatre, at 830-792-7401 or csulliva@schreiner.edu. For more information about Schreiner University, visit the website at www.schreiner.edu.
