Student work: 'Madman/Robertson'

Senior Jake Robertson will present the classic Russian short story "Diary of a Madman" with a twist as he explores the characters in the story as well as the art of performing itself, asking: How much difference is there between a 19th-century clerk, an obsessive contemporary actor and the king of Spain? How do we know who we really are? The Program in Theater will present this senior thesis production, directed by Lecturer in Theater Bob Sandberg, at 8 p.m. Jan. 8, at 8 and 11 p.m. Jan. 9, and at 8 p.m. Jan. 10 in the Class of 1970 Theater at Whitman College. Tickets are free.
