Tickets for the Eastern Kentucky University Theatre production of “Tesla’s Letters” by Jeffrey Stanley will go on sale Monday, Sept. 14.
Beginning Wednesday, September 23, the show will run 8 p.m. nightly through Saturday, September 26, with a matinee showing Sunday, September 27, at 2 p.m., in Gifford Theatre in the Jane F. Campbell Building.
“Tesla's Letters” is a drama of ideas about war and peace, the exercise of humanity and the uses of science. Daisy Archer, an American doctoral candidate, arrives at the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade, Serbia, to examine its archives for her dissertation on the scientist's life. She is not prepared for the museum's director, a Serb with family in Croatia, who probes her knowledge of Yugoslav history and of Tesla, the Croatian-born Serbian genius who immigrated to the United States in 1884 and gave the world alternating electric current, wireless electric transmission and, perhaps, a death ray capable of inflicting instantaneous death. The director also tests her willingness to risk her life and innocence by entering Croatia to gather photographic evidence in Tesla's birthplace.
Tickets will be available at the Gifford Theatre Box Office in the Jane F. Campbell Building noon-4 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour before performances. Tickets are $6 for adults, $5 for students and senior citizens. Only cash or checks payable to EKU can be accepted. Call 859-622-1323 for reservations or visit www.theatre.eku.edufor more information.
