York College Welcomes Lynn Nottage, Winner of the 2009 Puliter Prize for Drama

The York College Theatre begins the 2009-2010 academic year with the “robustly entertaining comedy” (NYT) Fabulation, or The Re-Education of Undine, by Lynn Nottage- the 2009 Pulitzer Price winning playwright of the drama Ruined.

Set in present-day New York, Fabulation is a madcap comedic fable that follows the super-successful Undine as her life unexpectedly disintegrates into a world of drugs, prison, and poverty, forcing her to confront the most terrifying person she knows: Herself!

“Fabulation is a satiric tale…that subverts its comic and sentimental glibness with punchy social insights and the firecracker snap of unexpected humor.” -Ben Brantley, New York Times

Fabulation showcases the talents of 8 York College students:
Rashia Burrell, Jarrel Lynch, Stephanie Ogeleza, Olubukola Ogunmola, Shamar Olivas, Ryshon Shepherd, Earline Stephen, and Ronald Soutar

This production will feature the set design of David T. Jones and the vivid lighting of guest designer, Paul Hudson. CLT Jessica Morales, member of Actor’s Equity Association, is production/stage manager. Tom Marion, Substitute Assistant Professor of Theatre, will direct.

Only four performances:
• Friday, October 23 at 4pm
• Saturday, October 24 at 8pm
• Sunday, October 25 at 3pm
• Tuesday, October 27 at 12 Noon.
