The University of Rochester's International Theatre Program will this week present the work of a feminist, avant-garde playwright with "The Conduct of Life." Written by Cuban-American playwright Maria Irene Forñes, the play is among her works that may have been marginalized for a variety of reasons, including her immigrant status and experimental work. The Obie Award-winning work presents a powerful look at political, sexual, and social relationships. First performed in 1985, the work's examination of power, corruption, and abuse feels as relevant as ever. The production includes themes of violence.
Thursday through Saturday, April 25-27, and Wednesday through Saturday, May 1-4, at 7 p.m.; and Sunday, April 28, at 2 p.m. Todd Theater, University of Rochester River Campus, 500 Wilson Boulevard. $8-$15. 275-4088; sas.rochester.edu/theatre.
