UK Department of Theatre and Dance will open its season with "The Drunken City" Oct. 4-14, at Guignol Theatre.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 1, 2018)  University of Kentucky Department of Theatre and Dance will start its 2018-19 season this week with a production on the phenomenon that is bachelor/bachelorette parties with "The Drunken City." The play will run Oct. 4-14, at the Guignol Theatre.

”The Drunken City” is about three 20-somethings who head to the big city for a friend's bachelorette party. Just like any other bachelorette party, the evening becomes a little wild. After one too many drinks, decisions were made that were not the best. How did they handle the pressure? You will have to come see for yourself.

"The Drunken City" will take center stage 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 4-6 and 11-13, and again 2 p.m Sunday, Oct. 14, in Guignol.
