‘Maple and Vine’ opens in Harbach

“Maple and Vine,” the final main stage theatrical production of the term, opens tonight at 7:30 p.m.

The play focuses on the story of Katha (junior Emily Passarelli) and Ryu (freshman Tristan Yi), a young couple living in today’s New York and rarely finding themselves happy with their lives. Playwright Jordan Harrison contrasts their lifestyle with that of the 1950s, calling on the audience to reflect on how to live and who to love. Professor of Theatre Neil Blackadder is directing the play.

The production will run through Saturday, May 10. Admission for students is free with a Knox ID.
