We’re watching what could be the last broadcast ever. The sun has set over the neighborhoods, government buildings and American backyards everywhere. A news team is on the way. Their report: someone left the lawn sprinklers on; someone's horse is on the loose; a seashell is lying in the grass; dogs run by. The Governor appeals for calm. Everyone doesn't know if the sun, once down, will ever rise again. But there is a witness, and the witness will speak. Tragedy: a Tragedy is many things, including a comedy, a lyric poem and a lament. Interpreted by some as a satire of TV, this is a play about all the utterances flying about us every day, and our doomed if well-meant attempt to shape something useful from them. Performance will be in the Edna Minor Conn Theatre--Lee University Vest building room 305. Performances will be on February 20, 21, 22, and 24 at 7:30 pm, with a matinee on February 23 at 2:30 pm.
