University Players taking short works to stage

Funny, fast-paced, and just a little absurd, the University Players production of Suzan-Lori Parks' 365 Days/365 Plays opens this evening at Essex Hall Theatre.

The piece is directed by Jane Luk, a Canadian actor whose resumé includes work on The Handmaid’s Tale and Kim’s Convenience, as well as for Canadian Comedy Awards for Funniest Female Improvisor. Her background in comedy is reflected in these performances, scene studies of more than 40 of the playwright’s 365 short works.

Brimming with everything from sock puppets and grandparents to dragons and divas, there’s sure to be something for audiences to love.

365 Days/365 Plays opens Feb. 3 with a 7:30 p.m. performance at Essex Hall Theatre and runs until Feb. 12. Recommended for ages 14+. Tickets are on sale now and can be bought at UWindsor student tickets are just $10, and regular price tickets start at $20.
