Theatre season in full swing 

You can see work of current Theatre Design students in Ubu the King, an English version of the absurdist classic Ubu Roi, for which they designed marionettes in class.

Ubu the King is directed by Mark Sussman, and will be shown March 13, 14 and 15 at 8 p.m. and March 15 and 16 at 2 p.m. in the F.C. Smith Theatre at Loyola.

Theatre students will also present Provincial Anecdotes: An Incident with a Paginator & 20 Minutes with an Angel, by Alexandr Vampilov, described as a tragicomedy in two parts, in the downtown D.B. Clarke Theatre, from April 10 to 13, directed by Alexandre Marine.

During the big annual student-organized Art Matters festival, from March 6 to 9, there will be a program of short works by theatre students, too. Notably, No End to the Journal is a 45-minute play inspired by the life of Zahra Kazemi, the Montreal photographer who died in Iranian custody. For a full schedule of performances, go to
