BU Theatre Department Presents Wilde's 'Lady Windermere's Fan'

Play

Binghamton University Theatre professor Tom Kremer has adapted Oscar Wilde’s first big theatrical success, ‘Lady Windermere’s Fan’. It’s a story of blackmail, accusations of infidelity, gossip, social climbing, shameful secrets, and, finally, a selfless act that redeems all involved. Director Kremer and assistant director Carol Hanscom talk about this adaptation, Wilde’s rich language, and their long partnership. http://wskg.org/audio/windermere.mp3

A comedy of manners (without the manners) opens Binghamton University's theatre season

Play

Yasmina Reza’s dark comedy The God of Carnage is the next play presented by the Theatre Department of Binghamton University. Director Tom Kremer and one of the four actors, Tom Mackin,  talk about the two civilized and well-off couples who meet to solve a dispute between their two sons, and their descent into behavior that would make a ten-year-old blush.  The play was originally written in French, but has quickly been translated into many languages for successful productions. http://www.wskg.org/audio/carnagemix.mp3
