The Theatre Department presents
Sometimes the Rain, Sometimes the Sea
by Julia Izumi
May 5-7 | 7:30 PM | Adams Memorial Theatre | $3

Sometimes the Rain, Sometimes the Sea by Julia Izumi and directed by Kym Moore, is, in part, a play about the magic of storytelling. Why do we need stories? And what do we gain from telling them and listening to them? Actors in this piece must bring their wildest imaginations to the process and be ready to “play.” It is not a “realistic” play but one that expresses certain ‘truths’ about the human condition that are of vital importance to the creators. Themes of unrequited love and actual love will be explored, however, please consider these ideas of “love” as more than romantic. What does it mean to love anything or anyone truly? Actors in this piece must be eager to tell stories and to create an experience for an audience. And definitely be ready, willing, and able to have some fun!

There will be a post-performance discussion after the Friday, May 6th performance.
