Marymount Manhattan College Theatre Production Workshop presents a revival of Time and the Conways by J.B. Priestly from Wednesday, March 9 through Saturday, March 12 at 8 p.m. and on Sunday, March 13 at 2 p.m. in the Theresa Lang Theatre, located at 221 East 71st Street.
Time and the Conways (1937) is a meditation on J. W. Dunne’s theory of serial time, attesting that time is not merely a linear progression, but a concept that simultaneously contains past, present and future. The play follows the story of the seemingly perfect Conway family—Act One presents their perfect day, Act Two their worst day, and Act Three, the realization that their travails have paralleled the vanquished ideals of the British people between the wars.
This production is performed by students in the Theatre Arts programs of the College with direction by Associate Professor of Theatre Arts Kevin Connell, scenic design by Sofia Palacios Blanca, costume design by Elise Vanderkley, lighting design by Matthew McCarthy, sound design by Meghan Rose Murphy, and dialect and text coaching by Professor of Theatre Arts Barbara Adrian.
General admission tickets are $10. Tickets for senior citizens and students of others schools (with valid ID) are $5, and admission is free of charge for MMC students, alumni, faculty, and staff (with valid MMC ID). TDF vouchers are accepted.
