University Players Presents Morning Sacrifice
March 4 @ 8:00 pm - March 8 @ 4:00 pm
University Players (UP Windsor) presents Morning Sacrifice, an intense psychological drama by Dymphna Cusack, at the University of Windsor’s Essex Hall Theatre on February 28, 29, March 1, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8, 2020.
Morning Sacrifice is set in the staff room of a girls high school, in Australia on the eve of the second world war. Miss Portia Kingsbury, the dominating assistant to Headmistress Woods, rules with an iron fist over the women of Easthaven Girls’ High. After a seeming scandal seeks to disrupt the monotony of the day-to-day routine, Kingsbury leaps to the offensive attack, challenging all those who would step out of line. Caught in her crosshairs is the young Sheila Ray, a new teacher whose ideas about life and love are anything but the norm. Teachers take sides in this thrilling melodrama – leaving poor Sheila to defend herself alone against her one-time mentor and friend.
Directed by Sarah Kitz.
Evening performances from Wednesday to Saturday start at 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday matinee performances are at 2 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased on the UP Windsor website or by calling the box office at 519-253-3000 x2808.
