UT Arlington offers free performances of acclaimed playwright's first drama
13 January 2010
ARLINGTON - The University of Texas at Arlington Department of Theatre Arts will perform playwright John Patrick Shanley's "Danny and the Deep Blue Sea" at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 23 and 24. The free performances will be on Stage 143 in the north section of the Fine Arts Building, 502 S. Cooper St.
Shanley won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for "Doubt," a play that was later made into a movie starring Meryl Streep. The multi-talented Shanley directed the film. Earlier he had written the Oscar Award-winning screenplay for "Moonstruck."
"Danny and the Deep Blue Sea," Shanley's first drama, deals with two dysfunctional young people who meet by chance in an extremely rough bar in the Bronx in New York City.
"The playwright has created characters who are troubled and unsettled, while also being profoundly inspirational," said Director Natalie Gaupp, senior lecturer in theater arts.
The production is stage managed by Department of Theatre Arts senior Casey Hines and the roles of Danny and Roberta are played by seniors Stephen Tyler Howell and Tonya Free. Admission is free and reservations are not accepted. "Danny and the Deep Blue Sea" is for adult audiences because of adult language and content. Contact Gaupp, at 817-272-5722 or email@example.com for more information.
The University of Texas at Arlington is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer.
