Maverick Theatre Company's MavLab at UTA March 22-25

The University of Texas at Arlington’s Maverick Theatre Company presents MavLab. Experience the innovative plays that are the Maverick Theatre Company’s MavLab!

This play will be presented on March 22 and March 24 at 8 pm at 502 S. Cooper Street, The Studio Theatre, Room 137 of Fine Arts Building North.

In GRACE, sweet, Christian couple move to Florida from Minnesota on a mission to create a Gospel-themed hotel chain. Religious debates with their atheist neighbor and frequent visits from the local bug exterminator quickly turn this seemingly innocent business venture into a grisly crime scene. GRACE will be presented on March 23 at 8pm and March 25 at 2:30pm at 502 S. Cooper Street, The Studio Theatre, Room 137 of Fine Arts Building North.

Tickets are $10 for general public and $8 for students/senior citizens/UTA faculty and staff. For further information, please contact the UT Arlington Department of Theatre Arts box office at 817.272.2669.
