Also on tap in the remaining weeks of the semester will be a performance by the Boston College Dance Ensemble and the annual presentation of "A Dancer's Christmas," a popular retelling of the Christmas story through dance and song that has become a Boston College tradition.
"The Good Person of Szechwan" tells the story of three gods who enter a poor village in search of one good person and find Shen Te, a prostitute. They give her money to buy a store, but her generosity betrays her, and a series of comic adventures follow.
The production, which is directed by Theater Department Chairman Assoc. Prof. Stuart Hecht, will be shown at 8 p.m. today through Nov. 17 and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18. Admission is $10, $5 for senior citizens and students with a Boston College ID.
From Nov. 29-Dec. 1, the Boston College Dance Ensemble will give its annual fall presentation. For more information, call the theatre box office, ext.2-4002.
