Theater Production: ‘You Never Can Tell’
February 9, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$10.00
The St. Olaf College Theater Department will present a production of You Never Can Tell, written by George Bernard Shaw and directed by Assistant Professor of Theater Michelle Cowin Gibbs.
Set in England 1950, the play centers on the Clandon children. Having recently arrived in England from an 18-year stay in America, they are on a quest to find their father. One problem: they have no idea who he is or what he looks like. Meanwhile, Valentine, a local dentist, falls madly in love with Gloria, the eldest Clandon daughter. However, Gloria, who considers herself to be a unwavering feminist, claims to have no interest in love or marriage. Through a comedy of errors and confused identities, this vacillating rom-com is G.B. Shaw’s response to the farcical comedy genre … but with a witty and conscientious flair that only Shaw could do. This production is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, INC.
Performances are in Kelsey Theater with reserved seating. Tickets are $10 for the general public and may be reserved by calling the box office at 507-786-8987.
