7:30 P.M. Winter Theatre Production: "The Maids" by Jean Genet, directed by Pyin Bala '16

Genet’s absurd drama is based on the actual murder of the wealthy woman and her daughter by their two maids, the Papin sisters. In the play, Claire and Solange are trapped in inescapable identities with limited conditions. Their role play rituals-taking turns at dressing up as their Madame and seeking revenge-are their only way to find freedom. Through the series of events, their fantasies and illusions get out of hand and later become reality. Tickets at randolphcollege.edu/tickets or 434-947-8562.

February 19   Friday
7 P.M. Endstation Theatre Company presents "The Whole Bunch"
Thoresen Theatre, Harold G. Leggett Building
The play follows various characters through learning opportunities around smart food choices, kicked off by quirky cowboy Sam Sarsaparilla and his spunky sidekick Horseradish. The audience learns about the pure origins of farming, the introduction of chemicals and pesticides, and even witnesses a support group for produce featuring characters with personalities as funny as their names ­ Sweet Potato, Gary Garlic, Piney Apple, Betty Broc, and Russell Brussel. There are wisecracking gummy bears, a street­ gang of chicken nuggets and pop tarts, and a sad attempt at the football game “The Fruit Bowl.” The show will employ a professional chef, Marisa Jones, who will serve freshly prepared, locally grown food to the audience during the course of the play. The play is incredibly accessible for elementary­aged children to laugh, learn, and even challenge themselves to be a participatory audience member (there are several opportunities for raised hands and coming on stage for volunteers). The play uses humor to start an important dialogue that can then be continued by teachers, parents, and health advocates.
