Opens Thursday, May 8
Oklahoma City Theatre Company feeds anticipation for another great year for the Native American Play Festival with an original drama loaded with intrigue and meaning. Manahatta, by Mary Kathryn Nagle, premieres at 8 p.m. Thursday, May 8, at Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave., and continues through next week leading into next weekend’s main festival events. Nagle, an Oklahoma playwright living in New York City, is the author of Sliver of a Full Moon, which was presented in Tulsa last year. While Sliver dealt with issues of domestic abuse among native populations, Manahatta moves between today and the 1600s as it follows an ambitious Lanape woman who goes to work on Wall Street. Tickets are $10 each. For more, go to www.okctheatrecompany.org.
