University of Iowa News Release


Release: Oct. 26, 2006, 2006

University Theatres Gallery Series Presents 'Twitch' Nov. 2-5

The University Theatres Gallery series will present "Twitch," a new comedy by theater student Jon Kommes, at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 2-4, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5, in Theatre B of the University of Iowa Theatre Building.

Kommes' hero is a professional bearer of bad news, with all the pressure, the guilt and the romance that job entails.

"This show changes the face of the audience, the theatre, Iowa City, and definitely the world," Kommes asserts. "It's a pretty big deal."

The production features direction by Heather Bodie, costumes by Emma Tremmel, lights and sound by Chris Haug, and sets by Kommes and Bodie.

The production includes material of an adult nature. Potential audience members who are concerned about whether it is appropriate for them should contact the Department of Theatre Arts, 319-335-2700, for additional information.

Tickets are $6 ($4 for UI students) and will be available at the door one hour before curtain time. For more information please visit <>.
