The University of Iowa Theater Department will present Tattoo Girl at 8 p.m. today in the Theatre Building’s Thayer Theatre. Admission is $17 for the general public, $12 for seniors, $10 for youth, and $5 for UI students with valid IDs.

The production will be presented in the round. Based on Donald Barthelme’s short story “Perpetua,” the play takes the audience through the lives of a trumpet player and a tattooed pinup girl as they search their community, trying to find the pursuit of happiness and America.

Tattoo Girl was written by Naomi Iizuka, who taught at the UI Playwrights’ Workshop in 2000.

Several of Iizuka’s plays have won awards, including a Joyce Award and a Whiting Writers’ Award.

The production includes nudity, off-color language, and simulated drug use, UI theater officials note.
