Kellogg Community College will open its 2015-16 theatre season with a Pulitzer Prize winning tragic comedy opening Nov. 13.

“Crimes of the Heart,” by Beth Henley, will play for six showings this month at KCC’s Binda Performing Arts Center, on campus at 450 North Ave., Battle Creek. Showings will begin at:

Henley’s first professionally produced play, “Crimes of the Heart” focuses on three grown sisters reunited in Mississippi in the early 1980s after the youngest of the three shoots her abusive husband and is awaiting trial. The dark dramatic comedy won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best American Play in 1981, and Henley’s script for the feature film version of the play was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay in 1986.

Tickets are $5 for KCC students and employees with a current KCC ID and $10 for the general public. To make reservations or for more information about the production, call 269-965-4154.
