The Honors Program is providing free tickets for any performance of Bethel Park Falls to the first 100 honors students who come by the Honors Program office in Pickell Hall to pick one up. The play by Jason Pizzarello is about the residents of a small town and their local park:
The residents of the small town of Bethel are facing a crisis: Their beloved park has been sold out from under them and it’s sending their lives into a tailspin. In nine interconnected vignettes, sixteen locals grapple with the loss of jobs, homes, and spouses, but find love, courage, and forgiveness as the park magically transforms through four seasons of the year in a single day. From a tired security guard trying get home to her kids, to a young mayor in over his head, to a nostalgic fisherman who can’t seem to catch anything, everyone takes a fall… and picks themselves up again. Bethel Park Falls draws a group of complex, fascinating, funny people together into one poignant story about the spaces where communities connect.
Performances are Thursday, March 24 at 7:30 PM, Friday, March 25 at 7:30 PM, Saturday, March 26 at 7:30 PM, and Sunday, March 27 at 2:30 PM.
Our office is generally open M – F 8 – 12 and 1 – 4:30. One ticket per honors student.
