An ancient Chinese play is the focus for the African American Theatre Program's The Orphan of Chao, which begins on Wednesday. 

The Orphan of Chao will take place Feb. 2, 3, 4, and 5 at 8 p.m. each night. A matinee show will go on at 3 p.m. on Feb. 6.  All shows will occur in the U of L's Thrust Theatre, located at 2314 S. Floyd Street.  
 
Tickets for the shwo are $15 and $10 for various seats, and students can get in for $6 per person.  Tickets can be purchased by going to the U of L box office, located in the Studio Arts Building, or by calling 502-852-6814.  
 
The Orphan of Chao is based on a 13th century Chinese play but is set 100 years from now in a war and evironmentally-torn world. The play is also based on the culture of Yoruba in West Africa and introduces themes of family, sacrifice, and revenge, among others.
 
The African American Theatre Program will follow Chao with performances of How Orisanmi Chose His Head in April.  More information on the African-American Theatre program can be found at this website.
