Rowan University's Campus Players search for meaning in Eric Bogosian’s subUrbia, presented by the Department of Theatre & Dance on October 19, 20, 25, 26 & 27, 2007 at 8 pm and October 21 & 28 at 3 pm in Tohill Theatre. In an American suburban, a group of disillusioned twentysomethings spend their time getting wasted and romanticizing their high school experience outside a local convenience store. They consume themselves with humor, anger and angst in an attempt to fill the void that suburban life can leave: "Look at us. We all dress the same, we all talk the same, we all watch the same TV. No one's really different, even if they think they're different." Nothing defines these kids and subUrbia takes a look at these issues with guts and honesty. Director Dr. Elisabeth Hostetter has modernized the play for today’s audiences. Cell phones replace pay phones. Post-9/11 mentality replaces the original post-Cold War atmosphere. Contemporary rock music replaces the Sonic Youth soundtrack. "Think Cherry Hill," notes Hostetter in an attempt to offer a local reference point. Tickets are $10, general admission; and $5 for students, staff, alumni and seniors.
