“Harry the Rat” at Court


Fifth Estate # 41, November 1-15, 1967

The Court Theatre will begin its third season with revivals of two successful productions—HARRY THE RAT WITH WOMEN and OH WHAT A LOVELY WAR.

“Harry the Rat with Women” is an adaptation of the Jules Feiffer novel of the same name. It is the biography of Harry, the beautiful and narcissistic youth who is corrupted and eventually de oyed by the society which forces him to accept love and involvement on its terms.

The show was adapted and directed by Tom Darnall and first presented at the Kresge Court in the Art Institute in 1965. It has been repeated at the Court Theatre’s new home in Indian Village in 1966 and has been toured to Livonia, Birmingham, Fenton, and Wayne State University. The production will run every Friday and Saturday night in November at the Court Theatre. Curtain time is 8:30. Tickets are $3.00 or $2.00 (students and groups) and phone reservations are accepted, also available at the J.L. Hudson stores and Wayne State ticket office.

“Oh What a Lovely War” is the Joan Littlewood anti-war show which is set in the World War I era and presented in the form of a musical hall show. It will run every Friday and Saturday night in December except the 22 and 23.
