Opening Nights

Enchanted April

Opens Friday, Oct. 20 at the Very Little Theatre,

2350 Hilyard.

Perfectly timed for the beginning of Eugene's long, agonizing season without sun, this play shows the civilizing influence of Italy's sun on butt-pale English folks. No, not like Room With A View, but like many tales of the ways warming trends affect relationships and intimacy just as they affect the natural world. Don't see the movie; come to the play! Show dates are Oct. 20-22 & 26-29; Nov. 2-5 & 10-11. Call 344-7751 for tickets.

 

Chitra and The Arabian Night

The UO's second season opens Wednesday, Oct. 25 at

the Arena Theatre, 1109 Campus Lane (aka 104 Villard).

Two short plays explore identity: "The Arabian Night" by Roland Schimmelpfennig, builds on relationships and dreams while "Chitra," adapted from the Mahabharata by the great Bengali writer and musician Rabindranath Tagore, plays with gender and tradition in a young woman's quest for selfhood. Show dates are Oct. 25-28 and Nov. 2-4. Call 346-4363 for tickets.
