Ashland University Faculty Member Releases Sequel

Ashland University Faculty Member Releases Sequel

Dr. Jeffrey Tiel, associate professor of philosophy at Ashland University, has just released Osiris Rising, the sequel to his novel, The Search for Melchizedek. Whereas The Search for Melchizedek focused on an FBI agent’s ultimate quest to uncover the identity and whereabouts of an immortal Biblical priest, Osiris Rising turns toward the revelation of the ancient Egypt god, Osiris.

The sequel’s prologue again takes the reader into the past, far further than the original book’s look at the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Osiris Rising draws us back to the pre-history of ancient Egypt where the old myths show an intriguing concourse between gods and men. But the novel then plunges that ancient mythology into the present, pitting the old myth against the new. Tiel asks, “Ancient gods and modern military technology. Who’s going to win that one?”

2016-2017 AU Theatre Season Pursues Happiness

2016-2017 AU Theatre Season Pursues Happiness

Ashland University Theatre has made public its 2016-2017 season schedule that reflects on the pursuit of happiness. From coming of age, to young love and mid-life crisis, people all learn and grow from life experiences and hope to find happiness along the way. This year, AU Theatre presents a collection of live theatre that offers humor, fantasy and drama on the journey to a fulfilled life beginning with Lillian Hellman's drama The Autumn Garden; followed by Pippin, winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival; and closing with the romantic comedy Almost, Maine.

The season opens on Friday, Oct. 21, at 7:30 p.m. in Hugo Young Theatre with The Autumn Garden directed by Associate Professor of Theatre Dr. Teresa Durbin-Ames. Set in a summer resort home in the Deep South in 1949, this drama uses humor, sharpness, integrity and toughness as old acquaintances in their 40s gather for their annual reunion. As they reflect on their misspent lives and paralyzing regrets, they realize that life isn’t what everyone thought it would be. Rather, it is about being honest with yourself and creating an identity that you can live with. In addition to opening night, performances continue on Oct. 22, 28 and 29 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 23, at 2 p.m.
