THE GIRL FROM ANDROS
Friday, November 19, 2021
Reviving an age-old story of love, mistaken identity and the ridiculous situations that arise from deception, the theatre arts department at the University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma will perform “The Girl from Andros” by the Roman-African playwright Publius Terentius Afer, commonly known as Terence.
The story’s action revolves around the conflict between romantic love and family duty, as the main character wishes to marry a woman his father considers below their social class. Thanks to trickery and advice from household servants, another desperate suitor and lucky coincidence, love wins in the end. Science & Arts students will don classic “commedia dell’arte” masks for the production which combined with 1960s-style “mod” fashion will create the updated setting where carefree playboys frolic on a Mediterranean isle.
