Theatre NDSU presents Why Torture is Wrong...
April 10, 2014
Absurdist theatre at its finest!
Theatre NDSU is proud to present Christopher Durang’s Why Torture is Wrong and the People Who Love Them, which opens April 24 at the NDSU Walsh Studio Theatre.
In this brilliantly funny play, Durang blunts the edge of what might appear to be gruesomely violent by turning reality into farce. It is the story of a young woman in crisis: is her new husband, whom she married when drunk, a terrorist? Is her father’s hobby of butterfly collecting really a cover for his involvement in a shadow government? Does her mother go to the theater frequently to seek mental escape, or is she just insane?
Why Torture is Wrong runs April 24-26 and May 1-4; show time is Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 2:00 PM. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $8 for students. Tickets are free to NDSU students with Bison Card.
Tickets are available online at ndsu.edu/performing arts or by calling 701.231.7969. The NDSU Performing Arts Box Office is open 11 AM-5 PM, Monday through Friday, and is located at the Reineke Fine Arts Center (12th Ave N and Bolley Drive).
