The curtain will soon rise on the ACC Drama Department’s production of “TANGO,” by Polish dramatist Slawomir Mrozek. The work, written in 1968 during the Soviet takeover of Poland, combines elements of farce, absurdist theater, slapstick comedy, and political discourse.
The show runs March 2-4 and 9-11, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. in the Rio Grande Campus Gallery Theatre Â (1212 Rio Grande St., third floor). It is directed by Professor Marla Dean.
The protagonist is young man named Arthur, who endeavors to bring order to his free-spirited, bohemian family.
“Across the world, people and societies are struggling to find the right balance between personal freedom, adherence to government, and religious law,” says Shelby Brammer, department chair. “This play suggests what can happen when darker, barbaric movements take advantage of this struggle and make a grab for power.”
Admission is $5 for students and $10 for the public, with proceeds benefiting drama and dance scholarships. For more information or to reserve tickets, email email@example.com or call 223.3245.Back to Top
