By David West

Northwestern Theatre and Dance is adding two performances of the drama “Really Really,” according to director Pia Wyatt.

The play will be presented Tuesday, March 15 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday March 19 in Theatre West along with scheduled performances on March 16 – 19 at 7:30 p.m. The first two nights of the show on March 9 -10 were cancelled due to the weather.

Tickets are $15, $12 for children and seniors and Northwestern State, BPCC@nsu and Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts students are admitted free with a current student I.D. For ticket information, call (318) 357-4483. The play contains content that may not be suitable for children.

“Really Really” is about a group of Generation Me college students in the aftermath of a wild campus party. The play, one of off-Broadway’s most acclaimed hits upon its New York premiere, takes a disturbing look at Generation Me and its unstoppable quest for success at all costs. “Really, Really” is edgy, funny, caustic, and shocking, but thoughtful and weighty enough to hold its own even among audience members who think tweeting’s for birds and “Glee” is an after school activity.

The play raises questions about a generation so quick to demand things (money, sex, power) that is doesn’t stop to consider what they cost.
