Eccentricities of a Nightingale

By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Maria-Tania Becerra

A powerful and poetic work by one of America's greatest writers. The play centers on the complex relationship between a sensitive, lonely woman and a young doctor, her touching attempts to sway his emotions, and his uncertainty as to where his heart should lead him.

"Studying at the CSUB Theatre Department allowed me to experiment with projects and roles that shaped the actor I am today. They gave me space and tools to create art —regardless of size and scope — always encouraging creativity, spontaneity and hard work. I was lucky to have what I did in the theatre program at CSUB and continually draw on my time there for inspiration."

—Jeff Lepine, Artistic Director of The Peoples Improv Theater, NYC

"CSUB Theatre cultivates artists as they take responsibility for and initiative in their craft. It offers support and countless possibilities for students who are committed to growth."

—Miguel Torres, CSU Fullerton MFA Program
