Tucson, Arizona-- Pima Community College Theatre Arts presents The Time of Your Life, William Saroyan’s tribute to depression-era Americana, under the direction of Dr. Frank Pickard. The play won the 1940 Pulitzer Prize for drama and the 1940 New York Drama Critics Circle Award.
The Time of Your Life takes place in 1939 pre World War II in a run-down dive bar in San Francisco—Nick’s Pacific Street Saloon, Restaurant and Entertainment Palace. An interesting and complex array of colorful characters frequent the bar, bemoaning their own stories and problems creating a sideshow within a show. Much of the action rotates around the ringleader Joe, a young loafer with money who encourages each of the bar’s patrons in their eccentricities. Director Pickard states, “This is a wonderful play for an ensemble cast. It touches on different classes and social standings of the time, yet the language is fresh and relevant for contemporary audiences.”
The play runs November 3-14 in the Center for the Arts Black Box Theatre. The Pima Community College Center for the Arts is located on West Campus at 2202 West Anklam Road, Tucson (just west of downtown). For ticket information contact the box office at 206-6986 or email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> .
A photo call for the media is scheduled for Tuesday, October 19 at 6 p.m. in the Center for the Arts Black Box Theatre. Director Frank Pickard is available for interviews by calling 520-206-6720 or e-mailing email@example.com.
