ARKADELPHIA -- Henderson State University Theatre will present seven performances of J.M. Synge's comedy "Playboy of the Western World" at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24, 25, 27, and March 2, 3 and 4, with a reception following the opening night performance.

A news release describes the play as a humorous tale of an Irish lad who staggers through a pub door and soon confesses that he has killed his father. In his depiction of the relationship between the young man and an attractive, strong-willed local woman, Synge explores the effects of social conventions and celebrates the power of the imagination.

The cast includes Nicholas Bius, of Benton, Anna Brantley, of White Hall, Georgeann Burbank, of Benton, Damien Freeman, of Sherida, Reagan Hammonds, of Benton, Adrian Hinojosa, of Hot Springs, Joe Kalinowski, of Searcy, Dakota Mansfield, of Benton, Andrew McBride, of Benton, Anthony McBride, of Benton, Savannah Reynolds, of Monticello, Jacey Russell, of Morrilton, and Nidhi Thakar, of Hope.

The HSU Theatre Box Office in Arkansas Hall will be open for advance ticket sales from 1-4 p.m. beginning Monday. All seats are reserved. Admission is $8, or free with an HSU student ID, courtesy of the Student Activities Board.
