Fordham Alumni Theatre Company Presents Summer Production

The Fordham Alumni Theatre Company will present, What May Fall, beginning Wednesday, July 21, at the University’s Lincoln Center campus.

Written by Peter Gil-Sheridan (FCLC ’98) and directed by Morgan Gould (FCLC ’08), What May Fall is loosely and lyrically based on actual events.

According to a description of the show, “When a window washer falls to his death from the tallest building in Minneapolis, it forces nine strangers to face the slippery and terrifying reality of living in a world made of ice. What May Fall explores what keeps us grounded when everything can change in an instant.”

Tickets are $18 and $15 with a valid student ID. They can be purchased here.

The two-week production will run nightly at 8 p.m. from Wednesday, July 21 through Saturday, July 24. It then runs at 7 p.m. on Monday, July 26, and nightly at 8 p.m. from Tuesday, July 27 through Saturday, July 31. Performances take place in the Pope Auditorium on the Lincoln Center campus.

Founded in 2008 by the Fordham Theatre Program, the alumni company brings together graduates from all disciplines—including actors, playwrights, directors, set and costume designers—to create an annual summer production.

The company focuses on the development of new work and offers alumni actors, directors, writers, designers, technicians, stage managers and administrative professionals an opportunity to practice and hone their respective crafts in an encouraging environment.
