JSU drama department performing comedy
In this comedy based on the 17th-century French play L’Illusion Comique by Pierre Corneille, a father seeks news of his estranged son from a sorcerer named Alcandre.

The magician conjures three episodes from the young man’s life, each one filled with romance, action, comedy, and pathos.

The father’s angry heart softens as he follows his son’s quest for perfect love, while the sorcerer delights in sending the father (and the audience ) on an exciting adventure that culminates in an unexpected twist.

From the Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of “Angels in America” and “A Bright Room Called Day,” “The Illusion” will thrill and move audiences to consider the gaps between illusion and reality, love and loss, and the redemptive power of forgiveness.

This production is the inaugural production on the newly named R. Carlton Ward Stage.
