Friday, April 29, 2011
The Vista -- The Undergraduate theatre arts department's spring play, "The Mail Order Bride," will be making its debut at the Studio Theatre next week. "The Mail Order Bride," written by Charles Mee, is a hyperbolic, larger-than-life play that critiques and analyzes one of the most exclusive and dangerous environments in the world - Los Angeles.
The play follows the adventures of a bride named June, played by Jennifer Paredes, as she is bought and sold into the hands of husband-to-be Argan, played by Carr Cavender.
