Production by UNC Charlotte Faculty, Alumni, at FringeNYC

Tuesday, July 5, 2016

A group of UNC Charlotte theatre and music faculty and alumni will perform Cherry Jackson’s play, In The Master’s House There Are Many Mansions, at the New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC) in New York City, August 12-18. Performing as the Twilight Repertory Company, the ensemble is led by Associate Professor of Theatre James Vesce, director, and Adjunct Professor of Music Noel Freidline (music director), who also created an original score for the production.

The production of In The Master’s House There Are Many Mansions premiered at UNC Charlotte in February 2015 as part of the Department of Theatre season. Set in a mortuary in San Francisco in 1976, the one-act play addresses the persistent issue of police violence.

The show will be performed five times during the FringeNYC festival. The largest multi-arts festival in North America, FringeNYC is in its 20th year and presents programming by more than 200 dance and theatre companies annually. For more information, visit the festival website.
