THE HORRIBLE HUBBARDS ARE BACK AT UNCSA
IN LILLIAN HELLMAN’S CONTINUING TALE OF GREED
“The Little Foxes,” playing March 3-7


WINSTON-SALEM -- They’re ba-a-a-ck!  The money-grubbing Hubbards are back in Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes, which will be presented at 8 p.m. March 3-6 and at 2 p.m. March 6 & 7 at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA).  

The Little Foxes is Hellman’s sequel to her play Another Part of the Forest, which was performed at UNCSA earlier this month.

Matt Bulluck, a member of the School of Drama artist-faculty, will direct college juniors in this collaboration between the School of Drama and the School Design and Production at UNCSA.

Performances will be in the Catawba Theatre of Performance Place on the UNCSA campus at 1533 South Main St., Winston-Salem. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors and students.  Call the UNCSA Box Office at 336-721-1945 for reservations, or visit www.uncsa.edu/performances to purchase tickets online.

The Little Foxes will be set on the same stage at UNCSA as its prequel, Another Part of the Forest. Interestingly, The Little Foxes was Hellman’s primary piece and was intended to be the first of a trilogy of works about the Hubbard family.  It is set an entire generation after Another Part of the Forest, transitioning from where the Hubbards left off in Bowden, Ala., in 1880, to the new South in 1900. Greed, apathy, and revenge drive this particular broken family, building upon the same cycle of dysfunction and disharmony the Hubbards experienced a generation earlier.    

Matt Bulluck is an award-winning director, playwright, teacher, and arts administrator who has worked for some of the nation’s major arts institutions. In New York he directed for the Direct Theatre, the Cubiculo, the Players’ Theatre, the Royal Court Repertory, The Juilliard School, and Carnegie Recital Hall.  He worked on Broadway as the assistant director of the Tony Award-winning The Robber Bridegroom and the musical version of the Decameron Boccaccio, and served in the same capacity on numerous productions for John Houseman’s The Acting Company, New York City Opera, San Francisco Opera, and the Mark Taper Forum.  Also while in New York he acted for the Lincoln Center Touring Ensemble and the LaMama Experimental Theatre Company.  Regionally he directed for the Pilot Theatre in Los Angeles, the Power Center in Ann Arbor, Thalian Hall in Wilmington, Theatre in the Park in Raleigh, and 10 season of Shakespeare at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo.  A graduate of the Drama Division of The Juilliard School, Bulluck has served on the faculty of the School of Drama at UNCSA since 1997, winning an Excellence in Teaching Award in 2004.
