UVa-Wise Theater presents ‘He Who Gets Slapped’
The University of Virginia’s College at Wise Theater Division of Visual and Performing Arts Department is presenting Leonid Andreyev’s “He Who Gets Slapped” in the Gilliam Center for the Arts on Nov. 18-20 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 21 at 2 p.m.
The play represents the demise of a character named He, and the circus he joins, as he runs away from the humiliation of losing his wife and his intellectual property to a powerful rival. The play is presented by clowns, and features fire juggling, raucous music and a bed of nails.
Admission is $5 and tickets are available at the theater. UVa-Wise students, faculty and staff are admitted free.
