      Dean College Presents: Six Characters in Search of an Author, October 11-15, 2017

      10/04/2017

      Dean College Presents: Six Characters in Search of an Author, October 11-15, 2017

      The School of the Arts at Dean College will perform Six Characters in Search of an Author, beginning Wednesday, October 11 through Sunday, October 15, 2017.           
      This compelling play is juxtaposed as six characters arrive unexpectedly during the rehearsal of a play in search of an author to complete their story. Audiences for over 90 years have enjoyed and mused on the dilemma provided by the arrival of the “out of time and place” individuals. Do not miss this early absurdist play exploring the relationship among authors, their characters, and those involved in theater productions.
      The Dean College production of Six Characters in Search of an Author will take place in the Main Stage in the Campus Center at Dean College, 99 Main Street, Franklin at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday – Saturday and 2:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. General admission is $22, Seniors $12 and Children $7.
