My Ghosts, My Own: Five Short Plays by Romulus Linney ’53

Saturday, October 12, 2013 at 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Little Theater (Hall Auditorium Annex)
67 North Main Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

As part of the weekend-long celebration Drama in Every Human Life: The Art of Romulus Linney ’53, the theater department presents five of the late author’s one-act plays: Can Can, Claire de Lune, Stars, Juliet, and Songs of Love.

Director Annie Obermeyer ’14, says she chose these five plays to give a taste of the prolific Linney’s immense range. The stories vary in tone—some are abstract, some are literal. They also are diverse in setting; from a porch in Florida to the balcony of a Manhattan penthouse, the interior of New York theater to a Southern Institute for the Aging. Yet despite these aesthetic differences, each story explores loneliness and connectedness, the sweet pain of nostalgia, and most importantly, what it means to say goodbye.
