English 2041F - Fall Theatre Production

DATE: December 6-8, 2018
TIME: 8:00 pm
LOCATION: Conron Hall, University College
TICKETS: $10 Students | $15 Adults

Drawing upon Virgil’s Aeneid, Christopher Marlowe’s Dido, Queen of Carthage (c. 1593) dramatizes the classic and tragic love story of Dido and Aeneas. This short and lively early modern play blends comedy and tragedy and includes, alongside other human characters, many gods and goddesses—Jupiter, Ganymede, Juno, Venus, Mercury, and Cupid—as well as music, magic, trickery, and glorious poetry.


Auditions are now closed. Auditions and Crew Sign-Ups are held in March of each year for the Fall Theatre Production so that interested students may register in English 2041F for the Fall 2018 course offering and hence receive a course credit for their part in the production.

Performances will run from December 6-8, 2018 in Conron Hall, University College. No summer rehearsals!

For more information about the production and the course, please contact the director/instructor: Professor Jo Devereux jdevereu@uwo.ca.
