Announcing OU Theatre’s 2013-2014 Season

By the Bog of Cats
by Marina Carr
An Irish re-imagining of Medea, By the Bog of Cats tells the haunting tale of Hester Swane, a woman on a ferocious quest to keep her family together. She lives on a frozen and mysterious bog along with a witch, a few ghosts, and several other town misfits who threaten the only life she's known. Playwright Marina Carr brilliantly blends the mythic and the modern, the comedic and the tragic in this unforgettable story of heartbreak and vengeance.

Our Country's Good
by Timberlake Wertenbaker
Why would an Australian penal colony in 1789 attempt to stage the first play ever to be performed in the country? Why not?! Based on the true story of one officer's daunting mission to produce a play with a cast of volatile convicts who can barely read, much less act, Our Country's Good captures in earthy and poetic detail this inspiring story of theatre's power to transform the heart.

Two Gentlemen of Verona
by William Shakespeare
Valentine and Proteus are best buds. Valentine loves Silvia. Proteus loves Julia. That is, until he meets Silvia. Can the bonds of friendship triumph over desire? Shakespeare tackles the comedy and confusions of young love in this spirited coming-of-age story—one of his earliest plays.
