The theatre department will present five mainstage shows starting in September with “Eda (Everyman),” the Yoruba version of the medieval morality play “Everyman.” The production is presented by UofL’s African American Theatre Program (AATP).

Other shows include “Freedom Days,” which is part of the university’s Project Progress initiative focusing on the Civil Rights Movement, William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy “Othello,” the AATP production of “The African Company Presents Richard III” and the colorful murder mystery hijinks of “A Commedia Adaptation of Clue.”
