Ohio State Mansfield Theatre Returning To In-Person Shows This Season

1 Sep , 2021  

Special to 1812Blockhouse

The Ohio State University at Mansfield welcomes audiences back to campus for its 2021-2022 theatre performances. The performances, which will be held in Founders Auditorium on the Mansfield campus, include a comedy, drama and a new play, along with two staged readings.

The season kicks off with the first staged reading, The Guys, a reflection on the attacks that took place on September 11, 2001. Written by Anne Nelson, this free performance will take place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, September 11.

This special reading is based on a true story and will take audience members back to the first few weeks that followed the September 11 attacks. It tells the story of a reporter who receives an unexpected phone call from a fire captain who lost most of his men in the attack and is looking for a writer to help him with the eulogies. The reading is produced by arrangements with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. Donations will be accepted for local first responders.
