Frostburg State University’s Women’s Studies Program will sponsor Gabriella Klein’s one-woman show “Murdering Cinderella” on March 8 and 9 at 8 p.m. in the FSU Performing Arts Center’s F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre.
“Murdering Cinderella” is presented in honor of Women’s History Month. Recommended for adult children who vowed they would never be like their parents, “Murdering Cinderella” investigates the impact of one generation’s trauma on the next. Pearl, an only child of Holocaust survivors, must make sense of the history that was handed down to her in order to break the cycle of fear and anger that has been the legacy of her family. As she stumbles from one misadventure to the next, she encounters the ghost of the grandfather - whose name she cannot recall - and a cast of phantom characters who teach her that the past is never far behind her. Pearl’s hilarious and poignant quest carries her from Inuvik’s frozen north to the grimy underground of London. During this nightlong journey, she is forced to examine her own life choices.
The play is free and open to the public. However, tickets are required due to limited seating. Tickets are available FSU’s Office of the Division of Performing Arts, room 302 PAC, Monday-Friday from 9:30-4:30 p.m. Your financial support for such programming can be made to the FSU Foundation in care of Women’s Studies.
