UW-Green Bay theatre presents ‘Anatomy of Gray’
GREEN BAY —The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay theatre program will present “Anatomy of Gray,” a comedy/tragedy written by Jim Leonard, later this month.
Theatre Prof. John Mariano directs this story of story of love, loss and healing. The play follows June, who is suffering the loss of her father, when both magical healing and a tragic plague disrupt her small town of Gray, Ind.
Set in the late 1800s, June prays for a healer to come so that no one will ever suffer again. When a mysterious man comes to town claiming to be a doctor, healing certainly happens, but trouble comes next.
“It’s a very moving story told with humor and compassion,” Mariano said. “If people have only seen plays in large venues, I think they would enjoy the very different experience of seeing the play unfold up close.”
Leonard wrote “Anatomy of Gray” in 2006. He has also written “And They Dance Real Slow In Jackson,” “Battle Hymn,” “Crow & Weasel,” “The Diviners,” and “V&V Only.”
The UW-Green Bay production of “Anatomy of Gray” features nine student actors and a crew of UW-Green Bay students and faculty members.
Performances at UW-Green Bay’s Jean Weidner Theatre are scheduled for Oct. 15-17 and Oct. 21-24. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. Order online at www.uwgb.edu/tickets or call (920) 465-2217 or (800) 328-8587.
