Department of Theatre and Dance will present the play We Happy Few Oct. 8–10, 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 11, 2:30 p.m. in
The play, by
Imogen Stubbs, follows a seven-woman amateur theatrical troupe through British
schools and village greens during World War II. The group experiences both
disaster and triumph but, above all, the show must go on.
We Happy Few
is frequently hilarious, often touching, and features
the laughter-through-tears spirit in which the British specialize.
