"100 Years of Normal" is the name of MSU's centennial play going on this week - and this one has a story behind it that won't be forgotten.
The plot of the story is based on the family life of the director himself, Carlen Gilseth.
He recently found old books that his great-great grandmother wrote about her mother in the early 1900's.
After that, he decided that using historic family artifacts would be a unique way to write and produce a play.
It begins in 1913, the first year of Minot State University - and takes audiences through 100 years of our country.
(Carlen Gilseth, Director "100 Years of Normal") "The Universal truths in it, I mean, every family that lived in that generation has gone through the same things. You're talking World War I, and then you're talking the depression, and World War II and so on. And those big events, they hit everyone."
The play starts tonight - Tuesday - at Aleshire Theatre at 7:30 pm, and will be going on every night through Saturday.
Tickets are $6 for adults, and $5 for seniors and students.
