Theatre Presents "Ruhl in Rep"
OSA School of Theatre is proud to present Ruhl in Rep and introduce audiences to the magical world of Sarah Ruhl. One of the most acclaimed playwrights working today, Ruhl has one of the most unique voices in American theatre. OSA offers two of her plays in rotating repertory. The Clean House is Ruhl's breakout hit, a hilarious and touching story that spans time and space, culture and identity. With Three Sisters, Sarah Ruhl pays homage to another genius of the theatre: the Russian playwright Anton Chekhov. Ruhl's version of Chekhov'sThree Sisters preserves everything that makes Chekhov so mesmerizing while demonstrating what makes Sarah Ruhl one of the most respected and beloved playwrights of today. Join us for this once-in-a-lifetime chance to see two plays by one brilliant artist.
