NU Theatre presents “Engagements”

In Other, by , on February 20th, 2024

It is summer in New England, and every weekend is someone else’s engagement party. The wildflowers, specialty cocktails, and artisanal appetizers are perfect, but the people have a lot more to hide. Lauren is not at all ready for everyone to settle down, least of all her best friend, Allison. One night, when Lauren finds herself alone with Allison’s boyfriend, Mark, her destructive feelings get the better of her. Surfaces are ruptured, lies become harder to tell, and Lauren must begin to reckon with the true, roiling chaos within herself. A savage comedy about love and denial, “Engagements” is “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” with a few screws loose.

“Engagements” will be on stage in the Leary Theatre within the Elizabeth Ann Clune Center for Theatre, Clet Hall, Niagara University, N.Y., on the following dates/times:

Friday, March 1, at 7:30 p.m.
