OMAHA - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of Theatre presents "Freakshow," a poetically gritty tale of living wonders surviving in a remarkable world. This production is written by Carson Kreitzer and directed by UNO Professor Cindy Melby Phaneuf, .
Previews for "Freakshow" run Wednesday, Feb. 25, and Thursday, Feb. 26, with performances running Friday February 27 and Saturday, Feb. 28, as well as Wednesday, March 4, through Saturday, March 7, in the Weber Fine Arts Building on UNO's Dodge Campus.
The house opens at 7 p.m. with a 7:30 p.m. curtain for all performances. The February 25 preview will also be a TAG Night Out.
At the turn of the last century, a traveling Freakshow grinds to a halt. Things are changing. The anger of being stared at, trapped and caged is at war with the comfort of knowing your place in the universe. But the growing defiance of the freaks is no act.
Will the Dog Faced Woman break her bonds from the show, collapsing the fragile bubble of sustaining interdependence? Can the jaded Ringmaster, a profoundly broken man, find redemption through his love for the Woman With No Arms and No Legs? In this poetic, gritty world, there may only be one way out.
