"Provenance" to be performed at Notre Dame

by Christine Sopczynski


The University of Notre Dame’s Department of Film, Television, and Theatre (FTT) will present “Provenance,” the latest play written by Notre Dame Moreau Fellow Anne García-Romero. Directed by Kevin Dreyer, the play will run from Nov. 16 to 18 (Wednesday to Friday) at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 20 (Sunday) at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m., in the Philbin Studio Theatre of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.

Anne García-Romero describes her new work as follows: “When two sisters receive a stolen painting created by their Mexican great-grandfather, the women clash over whether to keep or sell the valuable artwork.”

Chuck Graham in the Tucson Citizen writes of her previous work, “García-Romero has a writing style that comfortably contains the literary spirit of Gabriel García Márquez, Jorge Luis Borges and others… The conversations in this play flow back and forth in gentle shapes.”

The performance on Nov. 17 will be followed by a post-play discussion with the author.

Tickets can be purchased online here, or by calling the ticket office at 574-631-2800. Prices are $10 for the general public, $8 for faculty, staff and seniors, and $5 for all students.
