Opening Nights

Lotus Lessons opens at the UO’s Arena Theatre Wednesday, May 21

Emma wants to find her birth mother. Who is this Chinese woman she doesn’t know? Who is Emma, for that matter? Ah, teen angst, expressed in a complex history-crossing UO theater department second stage production. The premiere of Wendy Williams’ new play gives imaginary characters their due in one young woman’s search for identity and place. The playwright hosts a talkback after the show on May 23. Show dates are May 21-24 and 29-31. Tix at 346-4363 or the box office.
