Spring Brings New Play to FMPA Chamber Theater

23 March 2015 Comments Off on Spring Brings New Play to FMPA Chamber Theater

A new production of American playwright William Mastrosimone’s “Cat’s Paw” will be performed by Department of Performing Arts students on March 19, 20 and 26 at 8 p.m. in the Bilkent Chamber Theater. The one-act play will be directed by İlham Yazar, instructor in the Department of Performing Arts.

“Cat’s Paw” is a drama about an environmental terrorist obsessed with the pollution of the world’s water supply, who bombs a government agency, kills 27 people and takes a hostage. An investigative journalist is granted an interview with him, and the game of cat and mouse between the two explores the themes of media responsibility, environmental accountability and governmental effectiveness.
