Pulitzer-prize winner's work showcased at CSUS

Photo from Book of Days produced by the theatre and dance alumni chapter A cheese plant, a fundamentalist church, a community theater and two mysterious murders dominate the small town of Dublin, Mo. when California State University, Sacramento's theatre and dance alumni chapter take up residence in August.

The chapter is producing Lanford Wilson's dark comedy Book of Days. Curtain times are at 8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays, Aug. 2 - 25 in the Playwrights' Theatre located in Shasta Hall.

In the play, the owner of a successful cheese plant dies in a mysterious hunting accident. His bookkeeper Ruth - who also happens to be playing the lead in the local production of Saint Joan - suspects murder. But her friends and neighbors wonder if her role is going to her head.

Wilson is one of the most esteemed contemporary American playwrights, with hits including The Hot L Baltimore, Fifth of July, Burn This and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Talley's Folly.

"Book of Days is lively storytelling by one of our best playwrights," wrote the Detroit Free Press. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch called it "a densely populated, unpredictable little world filled with intriguing characters."

Tickets are $12 general and $7 for students, seniors, SARTA Members, and Alumni Association Members. Tickets are available at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or at at (916) 766-2277. For more information visit the CSUS theatre and dance alumni chapter website at
