Rockhurst University Presents "Gone Missing"November 1, 2011

Rockhurst University Theatre will perform the Midwest premiere of the musical Gone Missing at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, and Friday, Nov. 18; and 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, and Sunday, Nov. 20, in Rockhurst's Mabee Theater.

Written by The Civilians, an investigative theater company in New York City, this piece of musical theater is composed of interviews conducted by the company on the subject of loss. The play portrays individuals who have lost everything from jewelry to technology to a black Gucci pump. It investigates both how things get lost, and how the impact of that loss can extend far beyond the meaning of the object itself.

Gone Missing was written by Steve Cosson from interviews by the company, with music and lyrics by Michael Friedman.

This play contains strong language and adult subject matter. Tickets are $10 each. For more information, contact theater director Susan Proctor, Ph.D., at (816) 501-4040 or susan.proctor@rockhurst.edu. Mabee Theater is located in Sedgwick Hall on the Rockhurst University campus, 54th Street and Troost Avenue.
