How does mass media influence American culture? Can markets and marketing be trusted? These questions and many others are the focus of “Truth and Beauty,” a multimedia exploration by Ping Chong that continues the Department of Drama’s 2005-2006 season. The play will be performed in the Culbreth Theatre Feb. 16-18 and 22-25 at 8 p.m.
The play features an ensemble cast comprised of graduate and undergraduate actors performing a variety of sketches and scenes.

Director Richard Warner describes the structure and tone of the play as “a combination of The Daily Show and Saturday Night Live. [It] mocks and challenges and … takes on topics such as globalization, corporate corruption, gun violence, freedom of speech and terrorism.”

Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors (60+) and $8 for students; full-time U.Va. students can use their ART$ Dollars to purchase tickets. Information: 924-3376 or http://www.virginia.edu/drama.
