Covenant College Theatre Department Presents "Protest" and Other Writings
Inspired by the life of political dissident, playwright, and statesman Vaclav Havel
The Covenant College Theatre Department will perform Vaclav Havel’s Protest on September 28-29 and October 5-6, 2018. Tickets can be purchased at the door, while seating is available. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $7 for seniors, students, and employees. To reserve tickets, visit covenant.edu/theatre or contact the box office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-419-1051.
In Protest, the price of avoiding hypocrisy becomes apparent to two old friends who seek each other’s aid in political matters. Camille Hallstrom, director of Protest states, “We really should put Havel [the playwright] in the same category as Martin Luther King or Gandhi.... This man was able to start a revolution without any bloodshed.” For a more in-depth description of the play, check out the press release.
Protest, along with others of Havel’s political writings, will be performed in Sanderson Hall Auditorium at September 28th and 29th at 8:00 pm, October 5th at 6:30 pm, and October 6th at 2:30 pm. Alumni Jonathan Austin ’18 (Stanek) and Mark Gabriel ’18 (Vanek) are the leads in Protest, with Mary Brook Diamond ’22, Emily Cothran ’22 and Cara Smole ’22 appearing as the Chorus.
Following the matinee performance on October 6th, a discussion panel will be held with several faculty members: Bill Davis and John Wingard of Philosophy, Bill Tate of English, Richard Follett of History, and the director Camille Hallstrom.
