Pinter Revue

Theater Lab, Schwartz Center for Performing Arts

Sketch comedy in the British tradition, Pinter Revue is a collection of short works spanning more than thirty years of Pinter's career, from Trouble in the Works (1959) to New World Order (1991). Mountain Language (1988), a play about state terrorism, is described by Pinter as a "series of short, sharp images" exploring "suppression of language and the loss of freedom of expression."

Marisol

Mary Gray Munroe Theater, Dobbs University Center

Rivera’s urban fantasia is set in post-apocalyptic New York. Marisol Perez’ world is in social upheaval because of a senile, inattentive God. This magical and highly charged comic play proposes a new world order of liberation and hope. Rivera is a recipient of two OBIE awards and an OSCAR nomination for his screenplay, Motorcycle Diaries.
