29 Sep UND Theatre Arts’ production Grace will play Oct. 1-5 at Burtness Theatre
The University of North Dakota’s Department of Theatre Arts will open their season with Grace by Craig Wright, 7:30 p.m. nightly Oct. 1-5 at Burtness Lab Theatre on campus.
Grace, directed by Brett Olson, is a tragicomedy that explores human assumptions about how God, goodness, faith and causality operate in the cosmic machinery. Steve and Sara have relocated to Sunrise, Fla., to pursue an unbelievably wonderful business deal. But as the deal slowly unravels and Steve finds himself afflicted with an itch that just won’t stop, Sara finds herself increasingly drawn to their next-door neighbor, Sam, a badly-scarred victim of a recent car accident who wants nothing to do with her or her Bible-quoting husband. In the end, with a little help from an old German exterminator who’s still angry about the Allied bombing of Hamburg in World War II, all three characters are confronted by a world that’s both better and worse than any religion can justify.
