Theatre Company Opens Season with "Tooth and Claw"

Bethlehem, Pa., September 27, 2011—The Moravian College Theatre Company will perform a reading of Michael Hollinger‘s “Tooth and Claw,” a thought-provoking thriller that explores evolution, extinction, and the nature of Charles Darwin’s “struggle for life.” The performance will be held in Moravian College’s Arena Theatre on Friday, September 30 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are free of charge.

Set on the Galápagos’ Islands, “Tooth and Claw” centers on the rising conflict between local fishermen and rising scientists when the fishermen are ordered to pull up their lines and cease fishing in order to save an endangered ecosystem. This compelling drama is the first of four readings in the Friday Night Play Reading Series.

The Arena Theatre is located in the Haupert Union Building at Moravian College, near the corner of Monocacy and W. Laurel Streets, in Bethlehem, Pa. For further information or ticket reservations for other shows, call 610-861-1489. For more information, visit: www.moravian.edu/theatre
