America Week 2013

Within the framework of the America Wweek (10-14 March) the University of Pannonia in collaboration with Nazareth College (Rochester, New York) organised a trip to Hungary for 12 American students and their teachers. Nazareth Colleage and the University of Pannonia have already maintainedbeen keeping up their relations for years as the two universities started a joint major course in Nazareth which is also available for Hungarian students. During the week the American as well as the Hungarian students and teachers gave presentations oin topics connected to the USA. We heard an extensive amount of information about the American music industry, entertainment, business, arts. and wWe also got acquainted with some of the problems the American society is facing nowadays, like illegal immigration to the US and racism. Besides these, the American students got an insight into the Hungarian hospitality in the homes of their host students and at the end of the week they took farewell of each other with a heavy heart keeping the unforgettable memories and friendships.

Love Letters performed by the Confuse-A-Cat Ltd. English Language Theater Program

“I feel most alive when I’m writing things down. I like the pictures more than the words. I love writing you. You most of all. To write a boy?! I enclose a picture instead. I feel like a true lover when I am writing you. You could start telephoning me. You can’t hang up on letters. You can tear them up, though. You can tear me up and throw me out or keep me and read me today, tomorrow, any time you want until you die.

This play is not a drippy love story. We see a lifelong “relationship” forming with situations that are familiar to us all: the feeling of success and loneliness, missed opportunities, and in general the search for something that makes our lives complete.

The show won Best Play, Best Direction and Best Actress Awards at the 3rd National English Language Drama Festival in Veszprém in 2011. Mr. Pál Óberfrank, Head of the jury and director of Petőfi Theater in Veszprém officially invited the show to be performed again in February 2012. Played with full house at the University of Debrecen four times and at Central European University, Budapest.

Duration: 90 min.

Time: Monday, February 6, 2012, 17.00

Venue: Latinovits-Bujtor Studio Theater Veszprém, Iskola u. 1.   Tickets are available in advance for HUF 600/person in the ticket offices of the Petofi Theater. 8200 Veszprém, Óvári Ferenc utca 2. Tel./fax: 88/422-440
E-mail: jegyiroda@petofiszinhaz.hu
