UNO Grad Student Remounts Adaptation of Cather Short Story
Omaha - University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) graduate student Julia Hinson has remounted her adaptation of Willa Cather’s short story Eric Hermannson’s Soul at UNO.
The adaptation is a narrative piece which examines the social forces that compel us to conform – or deviate – from society.
Eric Hermannson’s Soul runs Thursday, May 12 through Saturday, May 14 in Room 006 in the Weber Fine Arts Building on the UNO campus. The Weber Fine Arts Building is west of UNO’s Criss Library.
Door open at 7 p.m., with the performance beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10. Opening seating will be available on a first come first serve basis.
Hinson is presenting this project to raise funds for her upcoming trip to the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. There she will present her adaptation of Cather’s Eric Hermannson’s Soul to festival attendees. The Fringe Festival is the largest international arts festival in the world and takes place every August for four weeks, showcasing both classic and upcoming talent.
Any money raised May 12-14 will offset the cost of her cast attending.
