Theatres of War

Thursday, November 8, 2012 to Thursday, November 15, 2012
Theatre Arts Building - 211 W. College Street

by Peter Pauzé

November 8-10 (Thursday-Saturday) & 12-15 (Monday-Thursday)

This quirky and thought-provoking comedy by Denison professor Peter Pauzé takes us on a topsy-turvy trip through the history of American warfare.  Our hero is an ordinary WWII G.I. who wonders how and why he ended up lying in the ruins of a French boutique, fatally wounded.  He is offered cheerful advice and passionate opinions on the subject from a variety of helpful sources, including his dead parents, his never-to-be-conceived daughter, and a plethora of historical figures ranging from Adolph Hitler to Abraham Lincoln.  A smart, searing, and very funny exploration of human aggression, Theatres of War has some material that might not be suitable for children.
