“Tragedy: A Tragedy” by Will Eno at Dreamwell Theatre @ Public Space One
Apr 26 @ 7:30 pm
"Tragedy: A Tragedy" by Will Eno at Dreamwell Theatre @ Public Space One | Iowa City | Iowa | United States

Dreamwell Theatre is proud to present “Tragedy: A Tragedy” by Will Eno, April 26 and 27, and May 3 and 4, at Public Space One 120 N. Dubuque St., Iowa City (in the basement of the Wesley Center). Directed by Matt and Kris Brewbaker.

Tickets are $13 regular, $10 student/seniors. Tickets can be purchased at WWW.Dreamwell.com or at the door. Saturday, April 27, is also Pay What You Can night, continuing our goal of making theater accessible to everyone.

This play is a hilarious absurdist comedy set in the world of a local news broadcast dealing with a cataclysmic event. 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.

The cast is:
Frank in the studio – Duane Larson
John in the field – Nick Kilburg
Constance at the Home – Jessica Wilson
Michael (legal advisor) – Gavin Conkling
Witness – Brian Kleis
