Rashomon PosterThe theatre performance of “Rashomon” is adapted from the 1950 Japanese crime drama film directed by Akira Kurosawa. It is the story of a Samurai officer and his wife. The wife is assaulted and the Samurai is killed by a roving bandit. Contradictory versions of what happened are reenacted at the trial by the bandit, the wife and the dead husband who speaks through a sorceress. Each version is true in its fashion, but is there more to the story?

Opening night is 7:30 p.m., Fri., Nov. 9. Repeat performances are 7:30 p.m., Sat., Nov. 10; Thurs., Nov. 15; Fri., Nov. 16; and Sat., Nov. 17 with a special matinée performance at 2 p.m. on Thurs., Nov. 15.

Tickets are $8 for general admission and $5 for students, faculty/staff, seniors (55+) and alumni with ID. Tickets can be purchased at the box office beginning one hour before showtime or ahead of time online.
