The Department of Contemporary Art & Theater presents THE TOMB OF KING TOT by Olivia Dufault, directed by guest artist Charlotte La Nasa.
Jane Haley is the punny voice of the comic strip King Tot, a three-panel strip about a nine-year-old pharaoh in Ancient Egypt. Jane has just been nominated for the single most important award for female cartoonists in New England. All seems to be going well until bleak news strikes the Haley household. As Jane tries to hide her coping by working extensively on her comics, her art suffers as her main character tries to find his way through the Land of the Dead to find his “mummy.” Playwright Olivia Dufault pairs humor with heartache in this exploration of the processing of grief.
The cast and crew of the Tomb on King Tot is comprised of Shepherd University students: Danny Beauclair, Joseph Daniels, Maggie Gunning, Isaiah Hall, Danica Rodrigues, Grayson Spinney, Nevada Tribble, Jason Whitaker, and Tatiana Williams
