Southeastern Theatre is set to present the world premiere of “Beware the Licorice Vines” by playwright Eddie Zipperer, winner of the first Inkslinger Playwriting Competition. The show will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, March 9-12, in the Vonnie Borden Theatre in D. Vickers Hall on campus in Hammond.

General admission tickets are $10 for the public and $5 for seniors, Southeastern faculty and staff and non-Southeastern students. Southeastern students are admitted free with ID.

“Beware the Licorice Vines” tells the tale of a young artist, Hudson Manning, who has lost his will to paint after surviving a tragedy. This drama tells the story of how he breaks free of his past and finds his way.

“I think the audience will have a lot of fun watching the play,” said director Chad Winters.

MJ Ricks, of Lacombe, plays Hudson, with Emily Nodine, of Central, as Laura; Misty Gros, of Lafitte, as Katie; Tyler Meyer, of Mandeville, as Tom, and Taylor Sinclaire, of LaPlace, as Radio Voice.
