Season 2016-2017-02.jpg

Performances are at Dog Story Theater

The University Wits are starting our 2016 – 2017 season with a Michigan horror story: Escanaba in da Moonlight by Jeff Daniels.

When the Soady clan reunites for the opening day of deer season at the family’s Upper Peninsula camp, thirty-five-year-old Reuben Soady brings with him the infamous reputation of being the oldest Soady in the history of the Soadys never to bag a buck. In a hunting story to beat all hunting stories, ESCANABA IN DA MOONLIGHT spins a hilarious tale of humor, horror and heart as Reuben goes to any and all lengths to remove himself from the wrong end of the family record book.
