MANKATO – Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Department of Theatre & Dance will open “Brainpeople” by José Rivera on April 24 in the Andreas Theatre at the Early Center for the Performing Arts.

The final play of the Studio season, “Brainpeople” tells the story of a wealthy woman who invites two strangers to join her in a feast commemorating something really special to her. Mayannah has done this every year, but her dark purpose remains unclear. All that will change tonight when these two damaged souls find their way to her table. Taking place in a not-so-distant future, the sounds of a war-torn Los Angeles fill the air. Tensions rise and the true colors of the characters are revealed.

First year MFA directing candidate Yaureybo Jordán is making his directorial debut at Minnesota State University, Mankato with “Brainpeople.”

“Brainpeople” runs April 24-27 at 7:30 p.m. in the Andreas Theatre at the 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.
