CORVALLIS, Ore. - The Oregon State University Theatre's 2014-15 season, which focuses on War and Remembrance, continues with the Lab Theatre production of Stephen Metcalf's Vietnam-era play, "Strange Snow," in March.
The production, directed by OSU Theatre Arts student Bryanna Rainwater, will run March 5-7 at 7:30 p.m. and March 8 at 2 p.m. in the Withycombe Hall Lab Theatre, 2901 S.W. Campus Way, Corvallis.
The play tells the story of a troubled past shared by two Vietnam veterans during a fishing trip on opening day of the season. Relationships develop through humor and heartache as Dave and Megs attempt to move on from a horrific event. The exploration of friendship and the impacts of war upon individuals and families serve as a reminder of the personal sacrifices made in military service.
"This play explores much more than what's at the surface and reveals a lot about the human condition and what it is like to be vulnerable," Rainwater said.
The production features the work of Oregon State students Amanda Kelner as Martha, Evan Butler as Megs and Brad Stone as Dave.
Tickets are $8 adults; $6 for seniors; $5 youth/student; and $4 for OSU students. They can be purchased online at http://bit.ly/1wgmTkJ or by calling the theatre box office at 541-737-2784.
