News at Brookhaven College

Release Date April 18

Theatre Brookhaven's upcoming performance, "A Night of One Acts," will combine a series of dramas into one extraordinary performance.

Lucille Fletcher's "Sorry, Wrong Number," Matthew Kelty's "Opening" and Alan Haehnel's "Beyond Tolerance" complete the show's three-piece repertoire, which opens April 26.

"Sorry, Wrong Number," directed by Charles Self, is a gripping mystery thriller about a handicapped woman who relies on phone communication to reach the outside world. When phone wires cross, she overhears a plot for her own murder and is forced to seek help through limited resources.

Directed by Darise Error, "Opening" is a fictional conversation inspired by real events. The play recounts the challenge Hattie McDaniel, Mammy in "Gone with the Wind," faced, finding herself at a crossroads when the movie's producer instructs her to decline her invitation to the Atlanta premiere. With her career at stake, she sorrowfully submits to his request.

"Beyond Tolerance," a satiric illustration of extremism, tells the story of Gracious Mary Sensible, a new student at U. Burnem. Taking tolerance and political correctness to the extreme, Mary's new school requires conformity to their ideas – noncompliance could mean death. "Beyond Tolerance" is directed by Lisa Devine.

Performances are April 26-28 and May 3-5 at 8 p.m., and April 29 and May 6 at 2:30 p.m. in the Arena Theatre.

Tickets are $6 for students, staff and seniors. General admission is $8. For more information or to reserve tickets, contact the Brookhaven College Box Office at 972-860-4118 or at Box Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Friday from 1 to 3:30 p.m.
