by BWW News Desk - May 10, 2018

UC Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts Department of Drama wraps its 2017 - 18 season, The Business of Politics/The Politics of Business, with Green Day's iconic and defiant musical American Idiot. With songs from the punk band's 2004 album of the same name, as well as additions from their follow-up 21st Century Breakdown, the soundtrack combines a visceral howl of coming-of age-disillusionment with the sharp-tongued political commentary that is Green Day's trademark.

UCI Drama Looks at Immigration and Gender Equality in PLUMAS NEGRASUCI Drama Looks at Immigration and Gender Equality in PLUMAS NEGRAS
by BWW News Desk - Feb 20, 2018

UC Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts Department of Drama continues its 2017 - 18 season "The Business of Politics/The Politics of Business" with Professor Juliette Carrillo's original work Plumas Negras. Carrillo began this project while working with Cornerstone Theater Company in the East Salinas community back in 2013; she interviewed countless farmworkers, and as she heard story after compelling story, a narrative began to emerge. The play's narrative follows the lives of three generations of female workers, the struggles that tear their families apart, and the love that binds them together. Also partially narrating the action are two wise crows, as magical realism weaves throughout a script that is rich with serious explorations of workers' rights, gender inequity, and the perceptions and treatment of the immigrant population.

Time's Up as UCI Drama Explores Early Feminism In MRS. PACKARDTime's Up as UCI Drama Explores Early Feminism In MRS. PACKARD
by BWW News Desk - Jan 18, 2018

UC Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts Department of Drama continues its 2017 18 season The Business of Politics/The Politics of Business with Emily Mann's Mrs. Packard, a rarely-produced and timely look at the life of an early advocate for the rights of women and the mentally ill. Though the historical Elizabeth Packard lived in the 1800s, her struggle is all too familiar, as we follow her through a world of powerful men consigning her to an insane asylum in order to silence her convictions. Though it is clear to the audience that Elizabeth is sane, the doctor who holds the key to ending her 'incarceration' makes it clear that in order to be freed she must accept (her) husband's beliefs and find a way to live with them. There is much in this story that resonates with today's current sociopolitical climate, including an examination of the personal risk and potential fallout incurred by victims of injustice when they decide to speak truth to power.

This is the first show in a season themed The Business of Politics/The Politics of Business, which takes a look at the shady underbelly of capitalism. (more...)
