‘The Factory’ comes to Kleinau stage this weekend

“The Factory,” a show that centers on Andy Warhol’s storied New York studio space will hit the Kleinau Theatre stage, April 26-28.

Shows begin at 8 p.m. in the theater, which is in the Communications Building on the second floor. Tickets are $7; $5 for students with a valid student ID, and are available at the door before the performance begins. Payment is cash only. To reserve tickets, call 618/453-5618.

Seating is limited, and there will be no seating once the performance begins. The performance contains mature themes. 

The show is written, directed and performed by doctoral students Alex Davenport and Colin Whitworth, with co-direction by Jonathan Gray, an associate professor in communications studies.

Centering on Warhol’s creation of Truman Capote’s portrait, the performance uses a mixture of personal narrative and imagined historiography to investigate the performers’ identities through their identification with real-life friends Warhol and Capote.

Individuals with disabilities are welcome; call 618/453-5738 to request accommodations.
