``Blue Window,' a play following some quirky artists through a cocktail party, will be presented in Sternberger Auditorium at Guilford College.
Performances will be at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, at noon Friday and at 2 p.m. Sunday. General admission costs $3.The playwright, Craig Lucas, has won the Drama League Award and others in recent seasons.
``Typically, Lucas writes about the nature of interpersonal relationships,' said director Jack Zerbe. ``He has the ability to find humor and tenderness in even the darkest and most depressing situations.'
The party in ``Blue Window' is thrown by a grieving widow on the advice of her therapist.
``The play's unusual structure of simultaneous action and dialogue in five different locations help underline that all individuals struggle with the same issues when embarking on or ending an intimate relationship,' Zerbe said.
The student cast includes Drew Altizer, Heather Binion, Tripp Bray, Amy Fellers, Emma Geary, Megyn Palmer and Tim Fountain. The high-tech set in white and black was designed by Daniel Gene Guyette, Guilford's stage designer. Costumes are by Charlotte Scott and lighting by Steve Terrill.
