USF Presents Marvin’s Room
(February 3, 2016) â€” The University of Saint Francis School of Creative Arts presents its spring play, “Marvin’s Room,” starting April 1. The play will run over two weekends, April 1-3 and April 8-10, at the USF North Campus Auditorium, 2702 Spring St., Fort Wayne.
Showtimes are as follows:
- Friday, April 1 – 8 p.m.
- Saturday, April 2 – 8 p.m.
- Sunday, April 3 – 2 p.m.
- Friday, April 8 – 8 p.m.
- Saturday, April 9 – 8 p.m.
- Sunday, April 10 – 2 p.m.
Written by Scott McPherson, “Marvin’s Room” was adapted into a 1996 film featuring Robert DeNiro, Meryl Streep and Leonardo DiCaprio. Of the play, the New York Post writes: “…the themes of death, love, duty, care and service are frugally intertwined in a play of considerable emotional resonance. Laughing one minute, we are shuddering with a stealthy empathy the next. Death has rarely seemed more interesting or love so complex.”
Doors will open 30 minutes before the show for general seating. Tickets are available through ArtsTix Community Box Office at 260-422-4226 or online anytime at tickets.artstix.org. Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors 65 years or older and children under 18. Group rates of $10 per person are available to groups of 20 or more.
“Marvin’s Room” is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
