HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER
The University of Utah's Department of Theatre explores true political theatre with the play Self Defense, or Death of Some Salesmen. Besides being good theater, the play sparks discussion and generates awareness about domestic violence, abuse and deviant behavior. The play explores the story of a hitchhiking highway prostitute who is turned into a nationwide celebrity when she is arrested for the murder of seven men. It's inspired by the true story of Aileen Wuornos, a Florida serial killer who was executed in 2002. Experts will conduct a post-performance panel discussion on Oct. 22. Mature audiences only. University of Utah, Studio 115, Performing Arts Building, 240 S. 1500 East, 801-581-7100, Friday-Sunday, Oct. 21-23 & Thursday-Sunday, Oct. 27-30, 7:30 p.m.; Saturday-Sunday, Oct. 29-30, 2 p.m., $8.50-$18, Tickets.Utah.edu
