GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro College Theatre presents John Ford’s 17th-century tragedy, “’Tis Pity She’s a Whore,” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Feb. 22-24, and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 24-25, in the Annie Sellars Jordan Parlor Theatre in Main Building.

Tickets are $10 and may be reserved by calling 336-272-7102, ext. 5242, or emailing tickets@greensboro.edu. Because of the subject matter, this production is recommended for mature audiences only.

The play is adapted for the 21st century and directed by Ana Radulescu, a junior theatre/directing & stage management major. It tells the story of the incestuous affair between the brother and sister Giovanni and Annabella and its ripple effects in society, weaving in themes of blasphemy, obsession and revenge.

Greensboro College’s Department of Theatre seeks to provide a strong foundation in theatre while allowing the student to emphasize in a particular area such as directing, acting, or arts administration.

The coursework is integrated with the production work to provide a better understanding of the many facets of the theatre. Required participation on stage or backstage on all theatre productions allows the techniques and theories that are examined in the classroom and the laboratory to be tested in a performance setting.

For more information on the program, contact David Schram at 336-272-7102, ext. 5243, or email schramd@greensboro.edu.

Greensboro College provides a liberal arts education grounded in the traditions of the United Methodist Church and fosters the intellectual, social, and, spiritual development of all students while supporting their individual needs.

Founded in 1838 and located in downtown Greensboro, the college enrolls about 1,000 students from 29 states and territories, the District of Columbia, and seven foreign countries in its undergraduate liberal-arts program and four master’s degree programs. In addition to rigorous academics and a well-supported Honors program, the school features an 18-sport NCAA Division III athletic program and dozens of service and recreational opportunities.
