Contest winner cashes in on Australian knowledge

Marianna Beno, a clerk in the cashier’s office, won Monday’s DailyNews trivia quiz and its prize of two tickets to the University Players production of Morning Sacrifice, continuing through March 8 in the Hatch Studio Theatre.

Her entry was drawn from all those which correctly identified the Sydney Opera House as a landmark designed by Jorn Utzon, pavlova as meringue filled with fruit and whipped cream, and a wombat as producing cube-shaped feces.

Written by Dymphna Cusack, Morning Sacrifice depicts a power struggle among the staff of a girls’ school in pre-war Australia. Evening performances through Saturday are at 8 p.m.; matinees Saturday and Sunday are at 2 p.m. Order tickets online at or by phoning 519-253-3000, ext. 2808.
