The Interpreters Theatre presents "Clogging the System," conceived, written and directed by undergraduate honors student Harrison Postler.
Clogging the System is set in the ubiquitous offices of corporate America. The play uncovers how deeply embedded shame is in our society. When office members arrive at their new building to discover fully public toilets (not restrooms) they are forced to confront beliefs that have been ingrained within them since birth. Viewed through a satirical lens, the play takes many various twists and turns as it explores how people confront the things that make them uncomfortable.
Doors open at 7 p.m.; admission is free with limited seating. Tickets are distributed at 6:30 p.m. first come, first served.

From the land down under comes Circus Oz, one of the best circuses in the world – the legendary, globe-roving national circus of Australia, whose skilled performers serve up absurd acrobatics, graceful aerial acts, and fast-paced knockabout comedy, all to the rocking sound of the live Circus Oz band. You may think you’ve seen it all before, but Oz is something completely different – a bit punk, undeniably in your face, refreshingly progressive , and gleefully Australian.
