The Graduate Acting Ensemble in the department of theatre and film studies will present a two-night engagement Oct. 21-22 in the Cellar Theatre of the Fine Arts Building - Danny and the Deep Blue Sea by John Patrick Shanley:
A violent maniac and a neglectful mother walk into a bar, but the only punch lines are the scars they carry with them.

When they cross paths one night in a dingy Bronx bar, they might be each other's last hope for redemption.
