"The students started with Macbeth and worked up a provisional piece," said Richard Parker, general manager of Hartke Theatre and a lecturer in the university's drama department. "It's Macbeth, but not told in a linear fashion. They completely deconstruct Macbeth. It's something you really have to see to appreciate."
Catholic University's drama department was founded 57 years ago by the Rev. Gilbert V. Hartke, O.P. For the Master of Fine Arts degree, students can concentrate in acting, directing or playwriting. The department produces several full-length plays and shorter works each year on campus.
Parker can arrange interviews with the students. Call 202-319-5367. For other information, call Annamarie DeCarlo, director of media relations, 202-319-5600.
