Louis Bromfield: The Man Who Had Everything

6:30 p.m. Tuesday November 16

Staged Reading of De Luxe by Louis Bromfield and John Gearon

This rarely-presented work depicts a social elite on the eve of destruction. Set in Paris sixteen years after the First World War and in the midst of The Great Depression, Bromfield’s story follows a war veteran disillusioned by life after the war and a group of shallow elites and social climbers who struggle to face their new realities.

This work is presented with the Malabar Farm Foundation in honor of the 125th anniversary of Louis Bromfield’s birth and the 65th anniversary of his death.

7:00 p.m. Thursday November 18

There is no charge for this event and no tickets are needed. Donations will be accepted for the Malabar Farm Foundation.

Antigone by Sophocles

In an act of defiance to honor her dead brother, one woman stands against the state. Antigone is a timeless play about recognizing the dignity owed to every person – whether we agree with them or not.

This crisp abridgement and adaptation of the original Greek tragedy, based on a translation by R. C. Jebb, continues our theatre program’s recent effort to make rights-free, accessible versions of classical texts available to students and teachers everywhere.

Thursday March 31 at 7:30 p.m.

Friends of the Theatre

Friends of the Theatre are a pillar of support for the theatre program at Ohio State Mansfield, providing funds to underwrite the costs of performance each season. Licensing fees for the content, costumes, lighting and sound upgrades are all part of the operating costs of the theater, and this year is no different.

The arts continue to be a vital component of our lives so this season’s virtual performances are being provided at no charge to allow continued access. Your continued support as a Friend of the Theatre supports this continuity and enables us to bring the arts into our audiences’ homes.
