        Clarke Theater

        Pirandello’s surrealist tragicomedy presents six mysterious characters as they interrupt a group of actors about to rehearse a play, informing them that they seek an author because their own writer abandoned his play before completing their story. Desperate to come to life, the characters demand that the director stage their story suggesting they may actually be more real than the actors who merely play roles, while the characters are the roles. After all, what is real? What is illusion? And is it not the goal of the theater to present the truth, as absurd and disturbing as it may be?

        Mt. San Antonio College’s Theater Department is proud to present the West Coast premier of Ulloa’s sobering and poignant new work about the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. This docudrama is based on interviews with parents and citizens in Newtown as they work to put their lives back together after an unthinkable tragedy tears through the small town.

        “These 26 innocent deaths, like pebbles thrown into a pond, created ripples and vibrations that were felt far beyond the initial rings,” according to Ulloa. “This is the story of those vibrations.”
