Austin Peay's department of theatre presents “The Little Threepenny Café” as a kickoff to the 2003-04 AP Playhouse season.

Performances will begin at 7:30 p.m., Oct. 1-4 with a matinee at 2 p.m., Oct. 5 in APSU's Trahern Theatre.

“The Little Threepenny Café” chronicles the events of the first half of the 20th century. Set in a mythical Berlin café, poems and songs of love, war, politics and economics create “an evening that sears and soars.”

German playwright and Marxist Bertolt Brecht offers “a brilliant, poetic painting of the world…and of [his] persona” through the play.

“I thought that Brecht, despite the failure of Marxism…still had something relevant to say about the world we live in today,” says Louis Fantasia, the director and Roy Acuff Chair of Excellence occupant.

Play admission is $4 for students and children, $3 per person for groups of 10 or more and $6 for the general public. Tickets should be purchased and/or picked up a minimum of 24 hours prior to each performance.

For tickets and information, telephone 7379.
