Abstract

The Kennesaw State University Department of Theater faculty will present a readers theater performance of "Don Juan in Hell" at 8 p.m. Sept. 13. Proceeds from the $5 tickets will benefit theater scholarships and programs at the university.



"This is the second year our faculty has presented a readers theater production‚" said John Gentile‚ chair of the theater department. "It is the faculty's gift to our campus‚ our community‚ our students and our theater majors."



Gentile will present the role of the Devil. He is joined by fellow KSU professors Dean Adams‚ Jamie Bullins and Karen Robinson.



In a dazzling and hilarious display of wit‚ the characters banter over the merits and detractions of heaven and hell‚ art and life‚ sex and marriage. A lively debate between Don Juan and the Devil will leave the audience laughing and thinking.



"Don Juan in Hell" was originally written as one act in the George Bernard Shaw play "Man and Superman‚" although it is more commonly performed as a separate piece. In its first readers theater production‚ the roles were played by Charles Boyer‚ Sir Cedric Hardwicke‚ Charles Laughton and Agnes Moorehead.



The performance will take place in the Howard Logan Stillwell Theater on the Kennesaw State campus. Reservations may be made by calling the School of the Arts office at 770−420−4750.
