The Sixth Act Invites MCC to Geva Theatre Center

The Sixth Act is pleased to sponsor an outing to view Geva’s production of Arthur Miller’s The Price on Thursday, February 25. VaPA is producing another Miller play, The Crucible, at MCC in April, offering students the rare possibility of experiencing two Miller plays in one semester.

Geva describes
The Price: “Sixteen years after the death of their father, two brothers…meet in the attic of their childhood home…. As the brothers examine their parents’ possessions, they revisit the past…and years of pent-up rivalry burst forth.” The Washington Post writes, “Miller at his best…. The heart very nearly breaks,” and the New York Times writes, “One of the most entertaining plays that Miller has ever written…superbly theatrical.”

The showing starts at 7:30 p.m. on February 25, with a running time of 2 hours, 10 minutes, including one 20-minute intermission. There will be a 30-minute background talk offered free of charge one hour prior to the performance and, as a special addition for The Sixth Act, there will be a talkback with members of the production facilitated by Professor Jim McCusker directly following the performance.

Through special arrangements, Geva has set aside 100 tickets for The Sixth Act. With assistance from Geva and from MCC’s Honors Institute, these tickets can be purchased for only $15 each. Tickets must be ordered through Professor Ann Tippett <> before February 11.

Finally, please let Maria Brandt <> know if you would like to receive a special, pre-event curriculum packet, available by early February.

The Sixth Act is supported by MCC’s Creative Arts Committee and Liberal Arts Division.
