Opening Friday October 9th in the Studio Theatre, The Drunken City follows three soon-to-be-wed young women on a wild bar crawl that makes them question their future, fate, and the meaning of love. This contemporary piece set in New York City will take you on an unforgettable journey through one chaotic night of mischief and self-discovery. Directed by Department of Theatre Arts Chair, Pam McDaniel.
