HCC Theatre Dept presents: What of the Night? by María Irene Fornés
April 4th – 6th, Mainstage Theatre, Thursday thru Saturday, 7:30p. Saturday, 3p. Tickets FREE for HCC students, staff and faculty. $15 General Admission.
For tickets, see Admissions information at the bottom of this page.
The celebrated Cuban-American writer María Irene Fornés’s play, What of the Night?, is about sex, power, institutional failure, human frailty, betrayal, dreams, and madness. A Pulitzer Prize finalist, it follows an extended family whose lives are intertwined even as they try to escape the ties that bind them. When the just-married 14-year-old Birdie leaves her impoverished home to seek a better life, she unwittingly sets in motion a sprawling epic told in intimate vignettes that span across time and geography. Rainbow finds love. Charlie finds solace in loyalty. Ray finds the trappings of success. Though their yearnings are briefly rewarded, the lyrical story lays bare the difference between the hunger of the soul and the hunger of the ego.
This show contains explicit violence and sexual content, adult themes and language.
