HAMMOND – Southeastern Theatre is set to present the world premiere of "Beware the Licorice Vines" by playwright Eddie Zipperer, winner of the first Inkslinger Playwriting Competition. The show will run Monday-Thursday, March 9-12.
The performances take place in Vonnie Borden Theatre in D Vickers Hall at 7:30 p.m. General admission tickets are $10; $5 for Southeastern faculty and staff, seniors, and non-Southeastern students; and Southeastern students are admitted free with ID.
Beware the Licorice Vines tells the tale of a young artist, Hudson Manning, who has lost his will to paint after surviving a tragedy. This drama tells the story of how he breaks free of his past and finds his way.
"I think the audience will have a lot of fun watching the play," said Director Chad Winters. "It's a drama with a lot of mixed in humor. Sometimes we go inside Hudson's head or his dreams, and it's a wild ride."
The cast consists of MJ Ricks of Lacombe as "Hudson," Emily Nodine of Central as "Laura," Misty Gros of Lafitte as "Katie," Tyler Meyer of Mandeville as "Tom," and Taylor Sinclaire of LaPlace as "Radio Voice."
