In Bray’s Plays, University Theatre presents a series of eight short original works by award-winning, Off-Off-Broadway playwright Dr. John Patrick Bray. A lecturer in UGA’s Department of Theatre and Film Studies, Bray is also the moderator of the Athens Playwrights’ Workshop and director of Rose of Athens Theatre’s play reading series, No Shame Athens. Full of wry humor, the selections include Watery Grave, which invokes the infamous bathroom of iconic punk club CBGB, and Tech Support of the Darned, which eavesdrops on the water cooler talk of employees in the government’s secret Department of Extraterrestrial Findings. Other selections include Coffee On, Cookies, Eleanor’s Passing, Green Sound, On Top and Southern Werewolf. Each play will be directed by a different faculty member or graduate student, allowing the audience to see eight fresh approaches to Bray’s work. Each performance begins at 8 p.m. with a special Sunday matinee at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 or $7 with a student ID.
