Los Angeles Mission College Theatre Arts will present its spring production, She Who Was No More, an on-stage psychological thriller based on the 1954 French novel of the same name. She Who Was No More will run May 13-21 in the AMP Theater in LA Mission College's Arts, Media & Performance Building.
She Who Was No More will play in the AMP Theater from Friday, May 13 through Saturday, May 21. Performances times are Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:00 pm, with Saturday matinees at 1:00 pm. Tickets are $20.00 general admission, with a block of $10.00 tickets available with the code HALFOFF.
In this theatrical tale of suspense, Fernand, a bored traveling salesman and his mistress, Lucienne, conspire to murder Fernand's wife, Mireille, and collect on her life insurance. They commit what they believe to be the perfect crime, depositing the body in a pool. When Mireille's corpse vanishes, their plot spirals out of control and Fernand goes into a psychological whirlpool, losing his grasp on reality, barreling forward to a shocker of an ending. Using the classic French suspense novel of the same name as a script, this multimedia production—filled with a chorus of menacing “Demons” who play many roles—fuses the novel, video design, modern art, cinematic storytelling techniques, and 1950s music into a suspenseful kaleidoscope of guilt and paranoia.
Free parking is located in the parking structure next to the Arts, Media & Performance building or on Eldridge Street. The AMP Theatre has ADA seats available at each performance. For more information please visit www.lamcstage.com.
An on-demand video presentation of She Who Was No More will be available for $10.00 after May 28.
Six Mission College actors create the surrealistic world of She Who Was No More, including Natalie Arrendondo, John Barron, Jacqueline Lopez, Monserrat Lopez (all from El Carne King of Vallarta), Dennis Gonzalez (from Chavez Ravine and Dead Man's Cell Phone), and first-time Mission performer, Julian Rangel. Associate Professor of Theatre Robert Cucuzza adapted the novel for the stage and directs the production. Lighting and costume design is by Theatre Arts professors Bri Pattillo and Lena Sands, respectively. Video design is by guest artist Ly Eisenstein. Stage management is by theatre students Philip Mejia and Jacob Padilla.
