Shenandoah Conservatory’s Theatre Season Begins in “subUrbia”

Second Stage presents “subUrbia” from September 20-23 in the Glaize Studio Theatre.

Shenandoah Conservatory opens the 2012-13 Second Stage season with Eric Bogosian’s “subUrbia” under the direction of Jonathan Flom. “subUrbia” runs September 20-23 in the Glaize Studio Theatre.

Playwright Eric Bogosian focuses a dark lens on a dead-end suburb and a group of 20-something slacker denizens who are reunited with their old friend Pony, now a successful rock star. As jealousy, apathy, and bitterness seethe to the surface of the bittersweet reunion, it becomes clear just how elusive the American Dream can be. This play contains mature subject matter and is not appropriate for children.

Shenandoah Conservatory’s Second Stage Theatre Series presents “subUrbia” on Thursday, September 20 at 8 p.m.; Friday, September 21 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, September 22 at 8 p.m.; and Sunday September 23 at 2:30 p.m. in the Glaize Studio Theatre on the campus of Shenandoah University in Winchester, Va. Ticket prices are $10 for general admission and $9 for seniors. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the Shenandoah University Box Office at 540-665-4569 or visit www.ConservatoryPerforms.org. Group discounts are available for groups of 20 or more.
