The University of Michigan Department of Theatre & Drama will be presenting the comedic romp, Trumpets & Raspberries by Dario Fo this fall season at the Arthur Miller Theatre. The farce tells the tale of wealthy industrialist Giovanni Agnelli. Giovanni finds himself in a case of mistaken identity when an accidental facial reconstruction leaves him looking like one of his union workers, Antonio. With Giovanni seemingly missing, Antonio is the prime suspect. Of course hilarity ensues as Giovanni must prove he is not Antonio to detectives and to Antonio’s wife and mistress! The play runs Thursday, November 17, 7:30pm; November 18 & 19, 8pm; and Sunday the 20th at 2pm. $10-$26. 1226 Murfin Ave. 734-764-2538. www.music.umich.edu/
