052887 - The Icon first thought this was a a zip code, but upon further study, we believe the owner of this plate was born on May  28, 2987. We welcome clarification from any Icon view with more information. We spotted this plate on a blue Honda CR-V in Ada. (The monthly renewal sticker confirmed our birthday theory.)

Two foreign plays set for Freed Center this month

What is ONU's International Play Festival and what works will be performed this year?

What is this Festival? Since its creation in 2003, the International Play Festival has been entertaining and challenging audiences with new, innovative work from around the globe.

What will this year feature? Staged readings of two, full-length works, with three performances each: Prometheus, the Beginning by Ramón Griffero of Chile and Babysitter by Catherine Léger of Québec. ONU will premiere the first English translation of these plays.

What is a staged reading? This is a workshop-style production with minimal design elements and scripts in hand for the actors. The rehearsal process is shortened, which in this case has allowed us to offer more variety with two different plays/productions. These are the premieres of the first English translations of these plays.

Prometheus, the Beginning will be staged Thursday, April 27, at 7:30 pm; Saturday, April 29, 7:30 pm; and Sunday, April 30, 2 pm.

Babysitter will be performed Friday, April 28, at 7:30 pm; Saturday, April 29, 2 pm; Sunday, April 30, 7:30 pm.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for faculty and staff, $10 for seniors, and $5 for students and children.

Tickets may be purchased online through the Freed Center website or by calling the box office at 419-772-1900.
