Lee University Theatre Department is presenting "Tragedy: A Tragedy," a play by Will Eno. In this play, 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.

Tickets are $10 for General Admission, and $7 for Seniors, Students, and Children. Performance are February 20, 21, 22, and 24 at 7:00pm, and on February 23 at 2:30. Performances will be in the Edna Minor Conn Theatre, which is in the Lee University Vest Building room 305. Call the Box Office at 423-614-8343 or email at theatre@leeuniversity.edu.
