Scene from "The Menu"
The final performances for "The Menu," written by former Fine Arts Dean Jim Linnell, take place through Sunday, May 5. Tricklock Company brings Linnell's passionate and provocative book of poetry, "The Menu," to the stage.

Why are we here? Where are the signs that make a life? Do we find happiness or are we taken? Is it promised us? Who will love without falter, tell the story? With a haunting original soundtrack, Tricklock takes you on a journey following a map of men, women, love, death and everything in between.

Linnell, who also has served as chair of the Department of Theatre and Dance, signs copies of his book, "Walking on Fire," at a reception prior to the Saturday, May 4 performance at 6:30 p.m. The performances are Thursday, May 2 through Saturday, May 4 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, May 5 at 2:30 p.m. in the Experimental Theatre, located in the UNM Center for the Arts.

"The Menu" is directed by Elsa Menendez, with composition and original sound score by Casey Mráz. Movement direction is by Jennifer Predock-Linnell, with David Torres on lighting, scenographer/videographer.

Tickets are $15 for general admission, $12 for seniors and UNM faculty, and $10 for students and UNM staff. Tickets are available through the UNM Ticket Offices, call 925-5858 or on UNM
