Impressively minimalist, Le Quattro Volte contains not one intelligible word of dialogue and no discernible plot. Instead, writer/director Michelangelo Frammartino inhabits the rural, Calabrian region in southern Italy. There he documents the primary activities: goat herding with emphasis on one…

Written by Dennis Corcoran
The House of the Spirits is a very long, very challenging play to stage, seldom taken on by community theatre groups and rarely, if ever tackled by a university theatre program.  All the more credit, then, to the University of…
