Project Theatre.
This performance marks the debut
production of Project Theatre's
highly-touted artistic director John
Russell Brown, recruited from the
National Theatre of Great Britain to
revive the University's troubled
professional theatre program.
Brown's choice, although standard
fare among British regional theatre
companies, has rarely been seen in

the U.S. D.H. Lawrence's story is set
in an English mining town, and its plot
revolves around a complex set of
relationships between a man, his
mother, and his bride, each of whom
must cope with unorthodox sex roles
within their newly-altered family. The
cast includes Analee Jeffries of the
Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., Lily

Duck's Breath Mystery Theater - The
Ark

popular demand. In an effort to ac-
comodate all of those who are already
familiar with their public radio spots
on All Things Considered with Ian
Shoales as Mr. Science, the Ducks will
appear in six shows. The Ducks offer
an extremely polished and varied mix
of comic silliness and satirical
comedy; sketches about caffeine
zombies, life art, and transvestite
farmers give "corn" a new meaning.
Duck's Breath will not be appearing
elsewhere in the area on this tour, so
get your tickets early! 8 p.m. at The
Ark, 637 S. Main. Advance tickets

Loot-Suspension Theatre.
Directed by Andy Mennick, this Joe
Orton farce mocks drawing room
comedy and other genres by tran-
sposing immoral characters into
traditionally comic situations. Orton,
one of few counterculture playwrites
to eventually realize commercial suc-
cess, wove this lampoon about a
struggle between a corrupt police in-
spector and his prey-a wicked mor-
tician and his equally evil sidekick
who have cached stolen loot in a cof-
fin. This production stars Mickle
Maher, Christopher Flynn, Alison
Maker, Scott Palmer, and John

Auditorium, 8 p.m., Free. 763-4726.
Campus Cinema
Broadway Danny Rose (Woody Allen,
1984) Alternative Action
Witty, though slight, Woody Allen
pic that feels more like a New Yorker
short story than a full-fledged
comedy. Yet both form and content fit
each other well, and the honest
modesty of the film's direction more
than make up for unfulfilled expec-
tations. MLB 4, 7:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m.
$2.50

1979) Japanese Film Series
Aud. A., 8 p.m. only. Free.

$2.50/single, $3.50/double.
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
(Sergio Leone, 1967) C2
More than just another Eastwood
shoot-em-up, GBU attempts to tran-
sform the story of a stereotypical
loner-killer into an epic blend of
images, music, character vignettes,
pathos and humor. MLB 3, 9:30 p.m.
$2.50/single, $3.50/double.
Mask (Peter Bogdanovich, 1985) Ann
Arbor Film Co-operative.
Bogdanovich takes on the
traditional disfiguring-disease bio-pic
and saves us from maudlin tears by
portraying the tragic youth as just
another normal kid. As his mother,
Cher demonstrates an easy acting
style well-suited to her role. Nat. Sci.,
7p.m., 9 p.m. $2.50.
Prizzi's Honor (John Huston, 1985)
Michigan Theatre Foundation
The American Master has given us
another sparkling film produced with
