Graduate Theatre Arts: Chrysopylae

Apr 1, Fri 7:30 p.m. – 8:45 p.m.

The Spinning Jenny, Greer

Directed by graduate student Janie Board, Chrysopylae is a story about the invisible war being fought for the souls of men and women.

Albert builds his dream bridge in spite of objections. But from the beginning, it seems as though the architect is not in charge; perhaps the bridge is. As he watches his dream go awry, Albert begins to question his own significance.

In contrast, Ellen begins to question the significance of her own life full of goodbyes and loss. The bridge will be the deciding factor for them both.
