Gaslight Theatre Co. presents East Coast premiere of ‘Drowning Ophelia’ at Lackawanna College Jan. 28-31
From a press release:
Community Concerts at Lackawanna College will close its 88th season, sponsored by the Hilton Scranton & Conference Center, with Gaslight Theatre Company’s original production of “Drowning Ophelia.”
Gaslight Theatre Company returns to The Theater at Lackawanna College stage (501 Vine St., Scranton) for the sixth consecutive year with this East Coast premiere by regional playwright Rachel Luann Strayer.
Jane doesn’t know what to do with the literary character who has taken up residence in her bathtub. She doesn’t want Ophelia interrupting the obsessive order of her life with obnoxious songs about death and valentines, disrupting her relationship with Edmund, or stirring up memories of a brother she would rather forget. But Ophelia doesn’t care about what Jane wants so much as what she needs.
As Jane’s past intrudes dangerously on her present, it becomes clear that Ophelia is not simply a character from “Hamlet,” but a long-forgotten messenger with a question from Jane’s own troubled mind: how do you move on when reconciliation is not an option?
“Drowning Ophelia” runs Jan. 28-30 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 31 at 2 p.m. Single tickets are available for $12 and $15.
Tickets can be purchased online at Ticketfly, by phone at 570-955-1455, or through the box office, located at Lackawanna College in Angeli Hall (501 Vine St., Scranton). For more information regarding this production, visit gaslight-theatre.org/up-next.
