University Theatre to perform "House of Several Stories"

Play features director's vision

University Theatre will perform “House of Several Stories,” a comedy about a dysfunctional family’s bizarre Thanksgiving at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 19 through 22 and at 2 p.m. Feb. 23 in Moore Hall’s Bush Theatre at Central Michigan University.

“House of Several Stories” by A. John Boulanger examines how death, loss and dysfunction can leave a void in a person’s life through the eyes of Sue, the main character.

“I am excited to bring its unique charm to CMU audiences,” Director Keeley Stanley-Bohn said. “Hopefully audiences will enjoy the comedic aspects and charm of the play while at the same time being drawn into the story of Sue and her loneliness.”

Since 2009, directing this play has been a vision for Stanley-Bohn. Through her cast and crew, “House of Several Stories” will entertain audiences through chaos and exaggerated reality bringing her dream to light.

“Preparation and rehearsals have been going very well,” Stanley-Bohn said. “It has been a joy working with all of these talented students.”

The play includes strong language and mild adult content.

Tickets are $7 for students and senior citizens and $9 for the general public in advance or $10 at the door. Tickets are available through CMU Ticket Central here or 989-774-3045.
