'In the Red and Brown Water' to open Nov. 7

October 23, 2012

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State Centre Stage will present "In the Red and Brown Water" from Nov. 7 to 15.

A trilogy of modern-day stories of kinship, love, heartache and coming of age from Tarell Alvin McCraney, the winner of The New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, the brother/sister plays delve into the world of a Louisiana bayou housing project, a landscape of hardship and dreams. Influenced by Yoruban mythology, modern dance and autobiography, and populated with stories of sacrifice, heartache and laughter, this award-winning trilogy has been hailed as “the greatest piece of writing by an American playwright under 30” by the Chicago Tribune.

Previews are set for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 7 and 8, and opening night is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 9. Shows are also set for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 10, 12, 13, 14 and 15; and 2 p.m. Nov. 10. Tickets to evening shows are $18; previews and matinee tickets cost $16. Student tickets are $12.

Tickets are available at the Penn State Downtown Ticket Center, Eisenhower Box Office, Bryce Jordan Center or by calling 863-0255 or 1-800-ARTS-TIX.
