OU Lab Theatre’s premiere explores lingering questions


Secrets —

“Lion in the Streets” sends one out into the night wanting to run home and shower, but with a final message of hope from Isobel ringing in your ears. “My heart talks … it never be quiet …Want you all to take your life. Want you all to have your life.” Isobel reminds us at times that we can only find the light through darkness.

Shaughnessy’s production team includes Rachel Arditi, stage manager, publicity design and marketing; Chad Anderson, scenic and sound designer; Adam Honore, lighting designer; Whalen, dramaturg; Matthew Ellis, fight director; Tom Orr, director of the Helmerich School of Drama and co-producer; and Dean Rich Taylor, co-producer.

“Lion in the Streets” opened Wednesday and continues its run 8 p.m. today through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. The play is rated R due to violence and sexual content.

All performances are in OU’s Lab Theatre, 640 Parrington Oval, in Beatrice Carr Wallace Old Science Hall, second floor. Suggested parking is at the OU Memorial Union parking garage or First Presbyterian Church, west lot, 555 S. University Ave.

Tickets are $6 for students with an ID and $8 for adults. Tickets may be purchased by calling the OU Fine Arts box office at 325-4101 or visit in person at OU Catlett Music Center, 500 Boyd Ave.
