UIS Theater to present Fifth of July

The UIS Theater Program's spring production will be Lanford Wilson's comedy-drama The Fifth of July. Set in 1977, the story deals with a group of old friends and the changes that have occurred in their lives and attitudes in the years since they were antiwar activists in college. Critics have hailed the play as “a major work by one of the theater’s most important and celebrated writers…alternately funny and moving.”

Six performances will be presented: Friday, Saturday, Sunday, April 1-3 and 8-10, in the Studio Theatre. All performances will be at 8 p.m. except the two Sunday performances, which will be at 2 p.m. Read more>>
