Abstract

The Kennesaw State University School of the Arts Classic TheaterWorks presentation of "The Sisterhood" runs now through Oct. 14 at Stillwell Theater.

Metro Atlanta actor and director Karen Robinson is directing the production‚ a modern adaptation of Moliere's "The Learned Ladies‚" a comedy of manners. "I have chosen the end of the 1960s for the setting of the production‚" said Robinson‚ a Kennesaw State faculty member. "I think contemporary audiences will immediately recognize − with amusement − the rebelliousness‚ the striving to be 'hip' and modern‚ the obsession with cultural fashion‚ and of course‚ the fierce new wave of feminism that the title of the play recalls."

Robinson works regularly at the Georgia Shakespeare Festival‚ where she has directed more than 10 productions‚ including "Amadeus" this past summer. Her credits include engagements at the Horizon Theatre Company‚ Seven Stages‚ Synchronicity Performance Group‚ Soul−stice Repertory‚ Theatre Gael and Theatre in the Square.

"The Sisterhood" is the opener for the KSU Classic TheaterWorks season − presenting favorite masterworks and contemporary award−winning titles in drama‚ comedy and musical theater.

Showtimes are 8 p.m. daily through Oct. 13‚ and 3 p.m. on Oct. 14. Admission is $15. For more information‚ call 770−423−6650.
