UNDER CONSTRUCTION by Charles L. Mee Kicks Off MMNT 40th Anniversary Season

Mary Moody Northen Theatre, the award-winning producing arm of the St. Edward's University professional theatre training program, kicks off its 40th anniversary season with Under Construction by Charles L. Mee, directed by David M. Long, running September 27 – October 7, 2012.

Mee's breakneck postmodern comedy explores the impossibly broad, messy, changeable and non-linear nature of life in these United States. Inspired by the art of Norman Rockwell and Jason Rhoads, this theatrical collage juxtaposes 1950s Thanksgiving dinner with the contemporary blogosphere, explores feminism, dancing and the barbershop quartet, and, ultimately, shines a light on our struggle to define the American experience. Originally produced by the Siti Company at the 2009 Humana Festival of New American Plays, MMNT's production features the talents of guest artists Amy Downing and Greg Holt.

A magical mystery tour of American hipster culture from the 1950s to the present. – Theatre Louisville

Under Construction is recommended for mature audiences.

"We are in the constant process of construction, making and remaking from where we are and what we have. This is what human beings do. This is the human project as long as we are alive." – Charles L. Mee, Under Construction, quoting John Cage.
