to present show

The people you call the cops on because they are still too loud? A young couple whose intimacy you hear through the walls? That lady who walks in uninvited at all times? The immigrants who curse in a strange language? The people who are hiding in the basement together during the war? The guy who does bad things when you are not looking? Written by graduate student Milica Njezic, “Live Thy Neighbor” is a series of poetic performances that explores what it means to be a neighbor in times of crisis.

This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. This production contains mature language and situations. Tickets can be reserved through Eventbrite, but will expire at 7:15 p.m. each night. Any nonreserved tickets are first come, first serve beginning at 6:30 p.m. The doors will open at 7 p.m.
