UE Theatre presents ZOOMBOX Spring 2021 Student-Directed Series

Significant Other

Engulf yourself in the world of Jordan Berman and take a journey through the awkward phase of what it means to “settle down.” Come along for the ride as he experiences heartbreak, a rift with his BFF, the rollercoaster of one’s late-twenties, and the ever-relatable feeling of worry about never finding someone to love. Come for the drama, stay for the tart comedy, and leave with poignant memories of a lovely story about humanity and human foibles.

February 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m.

Thanksgiving Play

Native American playwright Larissa FastHorse has written a searing comedy about four white people charged with creating a politically correct and respectful elementary school pageant about the first Thanksgiving. Through biting humor, THANKSGIVING PLAY takes on the mythology of people simply finding peace over a bountiful meal in what FastHorse herself calls “performative wokeness.” American Theatre Magazine named this satirical powerhouse of a script as one of the ten most produced plays of the 2019–20 season. Don’t miss this wickedly funny play by an important voice in the American Theatre.
