Tulane law students will perform "Katrina Stories," a gripping story of how Tulane Law School and the New Orleans community experienced Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath at Le Chat Noir Theater (715 Saint Charles Ave.) on Tuesday, March 21 at 8pm.
This hour-and-a-half theatrical production artfully weaves together the stories of more than 50 law students and faculty as they cope with the chaos and struggles of evacuating, living in exile and returning to New Orleans. Playwright Mary Nagle, a first year Tulane law student, powerfully blends the hardships faced by all New Orleanians during Katrina with funny caricatures of national media personalities and political figures. This fast-paced play moves through the sometimes heart wrenching, sometimes hilarious, experiences of the Tulane Law and New Orleans community.
This will be the second New Orleans public showing of "Katrina Stories" (as demanded following an earlier showing to a packed room of 200 law students in early January). Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. Tickets are $13 dollars and can be purchased with a credit card by calling the Le Chat Noir box office at (504) 581-5812. For more play specific information or to simply reserve tickets please contact Mary Nagle at (913) 486-1939 or
