'Drowned Man' is Winona theater production
WINONA — "The Drowned Man," an original drama based on the 1905 discovery of a wealthy Stockton farmer drowned in the Mississippi River, is the fall production of Theatre du Mississippi, Oct. 18-20 at the Masonic Theater.
Written by Dan Munson and directed by LeeGundersheimer, the play explores fears and insecurities that will be familiar to modern-day audiences: When there is no clear explanation of tragedy, do we fill in the blanks for ourselves? Must we settle on an explanation, even when there is a lack of real evidence to support it? Was the farmer murdered, or did he just have a terrible accident? Was this a singular incident, or part of a sinister and dastardly plot?
The cast includes Jeffrey Lueck, Bob Hawkings, Carew Halleck, Rob Thomson, Claire Richards, Maggy Jacqmin, Ray Felton, Daryl Lanz, Will Kitchen.
Performances will be 7:30 p.m. Oct. 18 and 19, and 2 p.m. Oct. 20. Tickets are available at reduced prices online — $15, $7 for students — at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/464941 . Tickets will also be available at the door for $18 and $10.
The Masonic Theater is at 255 Main St., Winona. Information: 507-458-2924.
