UU Announces Spring '19 Theatre Production: I, Cockroach

Urbana, OH (February 27, 2019)

Urbana University, a branch campus of Franklin University, presents theater goers with the unique opportunity to see a production of I, Cockroach, March 29-31.


Inspired by Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, this one-act play explores what happens when a cockroach infests a couple’s personal life. This dark romantic comedy takes us to unexpected places with its wit, charm, and disgusting turns. In the end, I, Cockroach will leave you wondering, who is the real monster? (The performance is rated PG-13 due to mild language and adult themes).


This year’s spring performance will be held Friday and Saturday March 29 & 30 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday March 31 at 2:00 p.m. at the Hub Blackbox Theatre, Urbana University. The cost is free so make your reservations today.


Reservations are recommended and can be made Monday, March 25 through Wednesday, March 27 by calling 937-772-9315. Reserved tickets should be picked up at the Hub between 6:30 and 6:45 p.m. on performance nights and between 1:30 and 1:45 p.m. for the Sunday matinee. 


Only 40 seats will be reserved and the remaining will be available as general seating on a first come, first served basis beginning at 7 p.m. each night and 1:30 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets not picked up by 6:50 (or 1:50 on Sunday) will be given away on a first come, first served basis to anyone waiting for a seat.  There is no fee, but donations are taken to support UU theatre.
