'Bourbon at the Border' adds performances

“Bourbon at the Border” will be presented by the department of theatre at 8 p.m. Nov. 4 and 6, as well Oct. 28, 29 and 30, and at 2 p.m. Oct. 30 and 31 in Studio 88, Center for Performing Arts.

The two November dates were added recently as all October performances sold out in mid-October.

The play represents a continuing focus on the events of the Mississippi Freedom Summer Project in 1964 - a grass-roots campaign to register African-American voters.

The play is written by Pearl Cleage and directed by Paul K. Jackson (theatre). It focuses on May and Charlie Thompson, who participated in Freedom Summer. The action takes place 30 years later in Detroit. Charlie returns home from a stay in a mental hospital and the couple attempts to reconstruct their lives, with the help of their friends. Tickets are $9 for adults and $6 for students, youth and senior citizens.

For tickets, call the Miami box office at 9-3200 or visit
