Duquesne University announces the first show of the 2018-2019 season


Duquesne University Red Masquers Perform The Foreigner, the First Show of the 2018-2019 Season, written by Larry Shue and directed by Jill Jeffrey at the Genesius Theater 

PITTSBURGH, PA September 19,2018 The Foreigner hits the stage at Duquesne University! Ms. Jeffrey, an adjunct theater professor at Duquesne University and Penn State University Greater Allegheny Campus, has previously directed Orphie & the Book of Heroes with The Red Masquers and played Detective in Clue: The Musical with The Summer Company.  She currently serves as the Executive Director at Gemini Children’s Theater.

The Foreigner takes place in a fishing lodge in rural Tilghman County,Georgia where two Englishmen, Froggy and Charlie, arrive as guests. Locals have mixed feelings about “foreigners” from overly-welcoming, to calling on a local “clan” to take care of Charlie. Wrought with hilarity and silliness, this play also explores the reality that, even in today’s world, hate is all around.

The Foreigner runs October 4 through October 14. Thursday through Saturday performances begin at 8 PM, Sunday matinees begin at 2PM. All shows will be performed at the Genesius Theater at Duquesne University, adjacent to the Mary Pappert School of Music. Ticket prices on line are$16.50 for general admission, $11.50 for senior citizens, and$6.50 for students. The production is free for those with a Duquesne ID. Group rates are also available. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at www.duqredmasquers.com
