pool (no water) by Mark Ravenhill

Magnuson Theatre

Date: February 9 & 10, 2023, 7:30pm
Location: Magnuson Theatre
Cost: $8
In this staged reading, directed by Blake Edwards and featuring the THEA 216 Acting II class, a famous artist invites her old friends to her luxurious new home. For one night only, the group is back together. But celebrations come to an abrupt end when the host suffers a horrific accident. As the victim lies in a coma, an almost unthinkable plan starts to take shape: Could her suffering be their next work of art? pool (no water) is a visceral and shocking new play about the fragility of friendship and the jealousy and resentment inspired by success. Written in a unique style and flexible for any number of performers of all identities, this work celebrates the theatrical form while asking some of the hardest questions we face as artists.
"Pool (No Water)" is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
Rated R for mature themes and language

Translated by Martin Crimp and directed by guest artist Josh Stamoolis, Gonzaga University's Spring 2023 theatre mainstage is Eugene Ionesco's 1959 masterwork, Rhinoceros! A meditation, among others, on the spread of dangerous ideologies and baseless beliefs, the denizens of a small provincial town begin turning, one by one--to the increasing alarm of our protagonist--into rampaging pachyderms. Join us as we explore this classic midcentury play that remains absurdly funny and rings shockingly fresh.
This translation of Rhinoceros was first produced by the English Stage Company at the Royal Court Theatre on 21 September 2007.
