The UNCG School of Theatre will perform Jackie Sibblie Drury’s “We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Südwestafrika, Between the Years 1884–1915” at the Sprinkle Theatre late October and early November.
“We Are Proud to Present…” is a comedic dramatization of the Herero genocide in Namibia from 1904-1907 when the region was a German colony. It depicts the first rehearsal of a presentation intended to tell the story, and shows how the various actors respond to the gruesome facts as they rehearse. Calandra Hackney is directing.
There will be performances October 25-27 at 7:30 p.m., October 28 at 2 p.m., and November 1-3 at 7:30 p.m. For tickets, call the Sparkle Theatre Box Office at 336-334-4392 or drop by before the show. The box office is located on the first floor of the Brown Building at 402 Tate Street and opens an hour before showtime.
