FAU’s Department of Theatre and Dance Presents ‘Summer and Smoke’
BOCA RATON, FL (October 25, 2012) – Florida Atlantic University’s department of theatre and dance in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters presents Tennessee Williams’ “Summer and Smoke” from Friday, November 9 through Sunday, November 18 in the Studio One Theatre on FAU’s Boca Raton campus, 777 Glades Road. Shows are on Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 1 p.m. General admission tickets are $20; students, faculty, staff, alumni and children under 12 may purchase tickets for $12; and group prices are available.
“Summer and Smoke” is set in Mississippi in the early 1900s and is centered around an unmarried minister's daughter, Alma Winemiller, and the romance that nearly blossoms between her and the undisciplined young doctor, John Buchanan, who grew up next door. Alma’s innocence is challenged by John early on, but the tables turn as the story progresses. By play's end, Alma has been transformed beyond modesty, while John’s attentions have turned elsewhere.
Tickets may be purchased by visiting www.fauevents.com , by calling 800-564-9539, or at the theatre one hour prior to the performance.
