Logan Sledge debuts as director at MLP with Alburn drama, Proof; performances Th, Nov 13, through Sun, Nov 16
In a black box theater at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse the award-winning drama Proof will be performed by a 4-person cast, says director Logan Sledge. Performances are Thurs, Nov 13, to Sat, Nov 15, at 8 pm. There is a 2 pm performance on Sun, Nov 16.
"I was drawn to this play primarily because it is one of those pieces that present an incredible opportunity for actors," said Sledge. "The situation that David Auburn has created for his characters is one in which the stakes are incredibly high. Auburn does not use spectacle to create intrigue. Instead, he uses the psychological needs of the characters to drive his story forward."
A talk-back session will follow the performance on Fri, Nov 14. Participants will include Sledge, associate professor of mathematics Dr. Katherine Brandl, director of counseling services Tina Feldt, and Dr. Keith Kessel, MD.
