Reno, NV.  Dario Fo’s Abducting Diana continues the 25th anniversary season at Brüka Theatre on June 7, 2018. Millionaire media boss Diana Forbes McKaye is kidnapped, but this ruthless magnate proves more resourceful than her clumsy abductors in this delight by the Nobel Prize winning Italian playwright. Are things what they seem? Who is in charge? Who masterminded the abduction? Who has the television rights to this premiere media event? Into this cocktail of chaos and double dealing, Fo adds a gun toting priest, a deranged altar boy, a kidnapper in a freezer, pyromania and an explosive climax.

Abducting Diana opens at Brüka with a post-show Friday night champagne reception and appetizers from the Wild River Grille on June 8, 2018. The show runs weekly Thursday through Sunday through June 23rd, 2018. Evening shows begin at 8:00 pm (Artist night is Wednesday June 20th, 2018 – all tickets on this night only are $10.) There is one Sunday matinee on June 10th at 2:00 PM followed by a talk back with the company and our audience.  The doors open a half an hour before curtain time. The play is suggested for ages 16 and up.
