This 1997 powerful play explores the intersections of truth, war, and political influence.  When an American Ph.D. student wins a grant to research electrical pioneer, Nikola Tesla in Belgrade, her discoveries surprise even this intrepid traveler. Electrical pioneer Tesla, a Croatian-born Serb, was Thomas Edison's biggest rival.   In her search to uncover Tesla’s truth, Daisy is guided and sometimes misguided by a museum director with his own agenda.  Daisy enters war-torn Croatia to understand Tesla’s world. In her search for Nikola Tesla's “doomsday device” to end humanity, Daisy is devastated to discover that no machine is required.

Discover the transformative magic of a powerful fairy forest and escape into fantasy with Shakespeare’s classic tale of lovers, warring fairies, and amateur theatrics. Two interlocking love triangles flee the subjugation of Athens and an amateur theatre troupe of handymen rehearse for their big break when they become unwilling pawns in a war between the King and Queen of Fairyland.  Love and abuse are two sides of the same coin in EKU Theatre’s dark and irreverent production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.…Lord what fools these mortals be!
