Lincoln College Theatre Department opens with 'Book of Days'     Send a link to a friend

[OCT. 20, 2003]  Lincoln College Theatre Department opens its season with the drama “Book of Days.” The first performance will be Thursday at the Johnston Center for Performing Arts on the college campus. Show time is at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 23-25, with a matinee performance at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 26.

“Book of Days” is set in the small town of Dublin, Mo., where the owner of the local cheese plant is killed one stormy night. Everyone accepts the story of a tragic hunting accident except Ruth, the bookkeeper, who has her doubts. Nothing will stop her from pursuing her one-woman crusade for justice. The play is a moving quest that begins to find truth and honesty amid small-town jealousies and lies.

The author, Lanford Wilson, is a Pulitzer Prize and Obie winner. Frank Rich of the NY Times calls him "a writer who illuminates the deepest dramas of American life with poetry and compassion."

Lincoln College instructor Jerry Dellinger directs the play.  

Ticket prices are $5 for adults, $3 for children and senior citizens. To reserve tickets call (217) 732-3155, ext. 280, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
