Article "Set for 'Godot' is UR Challenge"

Description

This newspaper article from the March 28, 1983 issue of the Richmond Times-Dispatch discusses the unique set design of the University Players' production of Waiting for Godot. The director John Countryman and set designer Maury Hancock, a UR senior, describe the set as a "nuclear holocaust," featuring a 600-pound metal tree covered with mattress foam and chicken wire, and featuring seven UR actresses who were to become part of the set. The production was to be performed that April, and was the UR Players' entry into the American College Theater Festival.
