Theatre Presents 'She Who Was No More'

Theatre Arts presents its spring production, She Who Was No More, an on-stage psychological thriller based on the 1954 French novel of the same name. This production runs May 13-21, 2022 in the Arts, Media and Performance Theater.

In this theatrical tale of suspense, Fernand, a bored traveling salesman and his mistress, Lucienne, conspire to murder Fernand's wife, Mireille, and collect on her life insurance. They commit what they believe to be the perfect crime, depositing the body in a pool. When Mireille's corpse vanishes, their plot spirals out of control and Fernand goes into a psychological whirlpool, losing his grasp on reality, barreling forward to a shocker of an ending. Using the classic French suspense novel of the same name as a script, this multimedia production — filled with a chorus of menacing “Demons” who play many roles — fuses the novel, video design, modern art, cinematic storytelling techniques, and 1950s music into a suspenseful kaleidoscope of guilt and paranoia.

She Who Was No More will play in the AMP Theater from Friday, May 13 through Saturday, May 21. Performances times are Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7 p.m., with Saturday matinees at 1 p.m. Tickets are $20 for general admission, with limited $10 tickets available with the code HALFOFF.

Free parking is located in the parking structure next to the Arts, Media and Performance building or on Eldridge Street. The AMP Theatre has ADA seats available at each performance. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit www.lamcstage.com.
