Loyola press release - January 11, 2019

Loyola Presents a touchingly revised version of Chekhov’s ‘Uncle Vanya’

Next month, Loyola Presents LIFE SUCKS., a play by Aaron Posner.

Directed by Southern Rep Theatre Artistic Director Aimee Hayes, a Loyola theatre alumna, this bold and funny reworking of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya will be performed by Loyola Theatre and presented by the award-winning Loyola University New Orleans Theatre Arts and Dance department.

In this bold and funny reworking of Chekhov’s “Uncle Vanya,” a group of old friends, ex-lovers, estranged in-laws, and lifelong enemies lurches between love and lust, laughter and longing, and the many ways in which life does, and doesn’t … suck.

Both brash and warm-hearted, Aaron Posner’s romp of a play reminds its seven hapless characters — and us — that to feel deeply is the price of a life well-lived.

LIFE SUCKS. will run in the Lower Depths Theatre at Loyola University New Orleans, 6363 St. Charles Avenue, located on the corner of Calhoun Street and St. Charles Avenue, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 8 and 9, and Friday through Sunday, Feb. 14-16, as well as at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019.

Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 students, and $13 for children and senior citizens. Tickets are available online at www.presents.loyno.edu. Ticket information is also available by calling (504) 865-2074 or the Department of Theatre Arts and Dance at (504) 865-3840.
