MANKATO – Minnesota State University, Mankato Theatre’s 2015-16 Studio Season will conclude with another provocative, thought-provoking selection directed by Kristin Fox, Rebecca Gilman’s “Boy Gets Girl.”

About the play: A disturbing chiller about a woman whose life of accomplishment is quickly destroyed by a disturbed admirer. The play works powerfully at its most basic level, as a suspenseful tale about the unraveling of a strong woman’s sense of security in the urban jungle. It certainly will touch a tender nerve in everybody who’s ever squirmed through a creepy blind date.

“Boy Gets Girl” will run 7:30 p.m. April 20-23 in the Andreas Theatre, Earley Center for Performing Arts, Minnesota State Mankato.

Tickets are $10 regular; $9 for seniors ages 65 and older, children under 16 and groups of 15 or more; and $8 for Minnesota State Mankato students.
