Join us this fall in the Jerome Johnson Richardson Theatre as Wofford Theatre presents The Danube, a stirring drama by Obie Award-winning avant garde playwright Maria Irene Fornes. Directed by Dan Day, The Danube is set in 1930s Budapest, where a young American businessman, Paul Green, meets a Hungarian bureaucrat and his daughter, Eve. Paul and Eve fall in love, but they soon face a dark threat when a mysterious sickness infects them as it spreads throughout the whole city – and possibly the world.
Longtime Village Voice theatre critic Michael Feinbold called The Danube “One of the most startlingly original and devastating things I can ever remember seeing on a stage.
