Shovels Vs. Schubert – Opening Night

Ben Firke ’12 writes in about a new 2nd Stage production opening tonight in the ’92 Theater:

The Sullivan family’s peaceful suburban existence is thrown into disarray when their eldest son Robbie begins to dig a giant pit in their backyard. His younger sister Kate, an amateurish writer and a full-time know-it-all, begins to investigate why her brother became obsessed with such a bizarre and seemingly pointless endeavor. In her attempt to solve the riddle of Robbie’s psyche, Kate discovers her family may not be the pleasant collective that her parents believe it is and she may have more in common with her brother than she thought.

The performances are Friday, and Saturday night at 8 p.m. in the ’92 Theater. Tickets are available for free in the box office.
