Theater students in Missouri University of Science and Technology’s arts, languages and philosophy department will perform “To Bathe or Not to Bathe,” a dark-comedy memoir by Gwyneth Strope, this February.
The performances will begin at 7 p.m. Friday, February 26, and Saturday, February 27. Both performances will be presented live to a virtual audience via Zoom.
The show is free to attend and open to the public. For the Zoom link or more information, visit alp.mst.edu/news-and-events.
“To Bathe or Not to Bathe” is a one-woman show about a modern-day Ophelia, which examines a pivotal moment for two women as they discover what they truly mean to one another. Ophelia is a character from Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” who goes mad from the actions of the character Hamlet.
"One-woman shows are very important in the theatre world right now,” says Taylor Gruenloh, assistant teaching professor of theatre at Missouri S&T. “To be able to have several one-woman shows on the S&T campus is exciting, especially with student performers and directors working in collaboration."
