“I picked this show ultimately because I didn’t understand it and I wanted to,” said Skyler Matthias, a senior theater arts major at the University of Iowa. “Every time we go through it, there is another thing to pick up.”
On Friday and Saturday, Company Carolina will perform “Tender Napalm” in partnership with the University of Iowa’s Lightswitch Theater Company.
GO TO THE SHOW
7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday.
Free admission, though donations will be accepted.
The actors in this piece are Matthias and sophomore University of Iowa theater arts major Aimee Townsend, though the title of “actor” means little to them as they see the audience as a part of the show.
“We are allowing the audience to create their own experience,” Matthias said. “We allow the audience to create as much as the actor. We want them as much involved as we are.”
