Loyola Theatre presents award-winning drama 'Albertine in Five Times'

Loyola press release - January 21, 2014

The Loyola University New Orleans Department of Theatre Arts and Dance continues the season with Michel Tremblay’s powerful play, “Albertine in Five Times,” an unflinching tale of one woman at five different times in her life. The moving portrait of an extraordinary “ordinary” woman will run in the Lower Depths Theater in the Communications/Music Complex Feb. 5-8 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 9 at 2 p.m.

Written by Quebec’s most celebrated playwright and directed by Loyola theatre professor Artemis Preeshl, the play explores the emotional journey of Albertine, a war widow and mother, from age 30 to 70. While the older Albertines warn their past selves of what is to come, the younger Albertines are passionate and full of explanations. Madeline, Albertine’s sister, shares her experiences of marriage and motherhood as the two women co-create how to live and love.

Tickets are $12 for general admission and $8 for Loyola faculty, staff, students and seniors. Tickets are available online or by calling 504-865-2074. Free parking is available in the West Road Garage, accessible from St. Charles Avenue.
