Tickets: students/seniors/military $8, general $15

Recruiting her fellow asylum patients, Lucia Joyce has put together a rock band and a series of songs about her life, her love affairs, and her struggle with the incarceration of her “unwanted” genius. She's crazy like a fox, as focused as a drone, a mosh pit danger, and a hell of a lot mad at Dad, the beloved James Joyce.

The Connecticut College Theater Department’s production is the first to be licensed to perform and devise anew this avant-garde play by the esteemed Obie winning Pig Iron Theater Company.

DETROIT 

By Lisa D'Amour
Directed by Ginny Anderson

In a first-ring suburb just outside a city that might be Detroit, Ben and Mary invite their new neighbors Sharon and Kenny over for a barbecue. The quintessential American backyard party turns quickly into something more dangerous — and filled with potential. Lisa D’Amour has written a darkly comic portrait of post-recession America in this 2011 Pulitzer-Prize-nominated play.

Friday, Oct. 10, 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 11, 2 & 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, Oct. 12, 2 p.m.
Tansill Theater
Tickets: $12; Students: $6

How much do you really want to know?
