February 2 UNO Theatre Reading - The Guard
Program begins at 6:30 PM; cash bar opens at 5:00 PM


This spring’s stage production of The Guard by Jessica Dickey, presented by University of Nebraska Theatre, offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate Joslyn’s reframed masterpiece, Portrait of Dirk van Os by Rembrandt van Rijn.

Join us on Thursday February 2, 6:30 PM in the Abbott Lecture Hall for a special reading of The Guard presented by UNO Theatre cast members.

A human and humane comedy, The Guard is a comic drama about the permanence of art and the impermanence of life paints shimmering portraits of Rembrandt, Homer and those who protect the art we cherish. In a modern-day art museum where three individuals yearn to experience first-hand the wonder and glory of Rembrandt’s work, a museum guard decides to touch a famous Rembrandt painting. A remarkable journey across the ages ensues. The Guard movingly explores the power of creative expression and the sacrifices we make in the pursuit of love and beauty.

This program is free to the public; no reservations required. Come early—cash bar opens at 5:00 PM.
