NY comes to LU
by Umut Hanioglu
The Prisoner of Second Avenue is a play written by American dramatist Neil Simon. Here in Lund, it will be directed by Pegah Zardoost during the 2011 spring term.
The play deals with the relationship between a couple living in New York, where the man is unemployed and kind of desperate. The actors’ auditions were completed in February and the selected crew is currently rehearsing feverishly.
The production has many departments; set design, cooking for parties, costumes, graphic design, photography and make-up. In fact, if anyone reading this is interested in joining you can become a part of the production by joining the play’s Facebook group here.
This is the first English production at Lund University that will have its premiere outside the university campus, at the Manteater in Lund.
The dates for the play are May 2,3,4 and 5, 2011. Tickets are expected to cost around 80 SEK for AF members and 110 for non-members.
For those interested, there is also a Swedish production going on that will premier around mid-May.
Let the show go on!
