The Undergraduate Theater Society will present The Family of Mann, Theresa Rebeck’s biting comedy about television, May 19–22 in the Cabaret Theater.
The Family of Mann involves a young writer who learns that comedy can be a grim business when she gets a job working on a television sitcom. Her colleagues insist that the show is both decent and real, while their own world descends into a ferocious madness. The Family of Mann hilariously questions who and what are invited into homes when the television is turned on.
Curtain time is 8 p.m. Thursday through Sunday, with a midnight show on Saturday. Tickets for the show are $5 and will be available at 7 p.m. on performance nights.
