The Penny Dreadful Players Presents:

MARY'S WEDDING

When Mary and Charlie, filled with the passion, vulnerability, and impulsiveness of youth, unexpectedly find one another sheltering in a barn during a thunderstorm, a tentative love is born. But the year is 1914, and Mary and Charlie must surrender their love and fate to the uncertainties of their tumultuous times. A play with a heart as big as the land that serves as its backdrop, Mary’s Wedding is a wonderfully tender, poignant story of innocent first love and the vicissitudes of fate.

Institute 4 Creativity - 111 S Walnut St. Champaign
{ theatre }

Join us for our first show of the semester, Under Milk Wood, Dylan Thomas' striking play.

March 6th & 7th at 7pm
at the Institute 4 Creativity -111 S. Walnut St. in Champaign

Directed by Stephanie Svarz
Dramaturge: Katie Newport

Commissioned by the BBC, and described by Dylan Thomas as 'a play for voices', UNDER MILK WOOD takes the form of an emotive and hilarious account of a spring day in the fictional Welsh seaside village of Llareggub. We learn of the inhabitants' dreams and desires, their loves and regrets. The play introduces us to characters such as Captain Cat who dreams of his drowned former seafellows and Nogood Boyo who dreams of nothing at all. It is a unique and touching depiction of a village that has 'fallen head over bells in love'. The First Voice narration reveals the ordinary world of daily happenings and events, while the Second Voice conveys the intimate, innermost thoughts of the fascinating folk of Llareggub.

Tickets:
$5 Students
$7 Non-Students
Tickets will be available at the door, beginning at 6:30pm.
