Ohio State University Department of Theatre to Present THE HOUSE OF THE SPIRITS, 2/26-3/6

The Ohio State University Department of Theatre presents The House of the Spirits by Caridad Svich and based on the novel by Isabel Allende. The production is directed by Beth Kattelman.

The House of the Spirits will run Wednesday, February 26 at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, February 27 at 7:30 p.m., Friday, February 28 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, March 1 at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Sunday, March 2 at 3 p.m., Tuesday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 5 at 7:30 p.m., and Thursday, March 6 at 7:30 p.m at the Roy Bowen Theatre at the Drake Performance and Event Center (1849 Cannon Drive).

The House of the Spirits, the haunting best-selling novel by Isabel Allende, comes to the stage in this fascinating adaptation, showing the struggles of a landed, privileged family in a South American nation as four generations of women confront a powerful patriarch and dictatorship in the 20th century. "Caridad didn't try to follow the plot. She recreated the atmosphere and spirit of the book. She has a very original, very special kind of mind. It just goes wild and I admire that. She's not restricted by anything," said Allende. The House of Spirits is recommended for mature audiences only.

Tickets are $20 for the general public, $18 for Ohio State faculty, staff, Alumni Association members, and senior citizens, and $15 for students. Tickets may be purchased at the Theatre Box Office, 1849 Cannon Dr, by phone at (614) 292-2295 or online at theatre.osu.edu.
