TU's Echo Theater Company Premiers New Play by Tulsa Playwright Ilan Kozlowski

Award-winning Tulsa screenwriter and playwright Ilan Kozlowski

Echo Theater Company at the University of Tulsa will stage the premier of Tulsa-based award-winning screenwriter and playwright Ilan Kozlowski.

“Shades of White” is a serio-comedy set in 1990’s Tulsa, Oklahoma during the year of the 75th anniversary of the Tulsa Race riot. The play explores the relationships between an Israeli immigrant, and a former Ku Klux Klan member, and their wives.

Narrow-minded Dr. Whitehill and his crone of a wife, Birdie, are set in their miserable ways until Dr. Whitehill encounters Yossi, an open-hearted Israeli musician who loves life. Uplifting, humorous and ultimately hopeful, “Shades of White” is a fast-paced comedy that is relevant for our world today.

“Shades of White” is a 2017/2018 entry into the TATE awards. This will be the first time that Echo Theatre Company has entered a production into the TATES.

The play is directed by Machele Miller Dill, and starring Pete Brennan, Julie Tattershall, John Orsulak, Diana Easter and Kerry Daniels.

Date: November 10, 11 at 8:00 p.m. and November 12 at 2:00 p.m.
Venue:Tyrrell Hall, 2930 East 6th Street on the University of Tulsa campus.
The show runtime is under two hours with a 15 minute intermission.
