UAH Theatre Program presents Hurricane Diane

UAH Theatre presents: "Hurrican Diane". A play by Madeleine George, directed by Karen Baker. Feb. 12-15, 19-22 @ 7:30pm. Feb. 16 & 23 @2:30pm Wilson Theatre.

UAH Theatre surges into the spring semester with the Alabama premiere of Hurricane Diane, a new comedy by Madeleine George, that looks at how we see ourselves as a part of the natural world in an unexpected way.

Diane, of the aforementioned hurricane, is a new incarnation of Dionysus, the ancient Greek god of wine and fertility. Finding herself as a landscape architect in a tony suburban neighborhood in New Jersey just outside of New York City, Diane vows to make new followers and a new world out of these manicured people with their manicured yards. Encountering three women of the neighborhood, Diane gets to work, but will her mission to bring renewed life to the world succeed, or are there dark forces at work against her?

Directed by Theatre Program faculty member Karen Baker, Hurricane Diane had its world premiere last year in New York City and receives its Alabama premiere with UAH Theatre. In working on Hurricane Diane, Baker says, “My favorite thing about working on a new show is to see the students make discoveries about the work. The collaborative process is magical. I hope the audience will enjoy the show as much as we have.”

Hurricane Diane runs February 12-15 and 19-22 at 7:30pm and February 16 and 23 at 2:30pm in the Wilson Theatre located on the UAH campus. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for seniors and non-UAH students, and free for UAH students with ID. Tickets can be purchased at the door via debit or credit card (please note we no longer accept cash or checks at the door), or online. by visiting
