Theatre department to perform “Smash!”

The Harding University theatre department will be putting on the comedy “Smash!” April 4-6 in the Ulrey Performing Arts Center. The play is based upon the novel “An Unsocial Socialist” by George Bernard Shaw.

Written by Jeffery Hatcher, “Smash!” tells the story of Sidney Trefusis, a millionaire socialist who leaves his bride on his wedding day for fear that she would ruin his plans to take over the British government in the early 1900s. The play takes its title from Shaw with Sidney’s epiphany that England has two options, “socialism or smash.”

Admission is $10 and can be purchased at the door or at hardingtickets.com. For additional information, please contact the department of theatre at 501-279-5315 or the UPAC box office at 501-279-4580.
