RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The world premiere of a new play, “100 Famous Views of Otzi” will debut Friday.

It is being produced by 12 Miles West theater company at Felician College, Rutherford.

The play is based on the real-life discovery of a mummified, 5,300-year-old "ice man" in the Alps in 1991, a discovery that startled and delighted the world. “100 Famous Views of Otzi” is a riff on his discovery, his significance and his murder, written by James Racheff. The production runs from Friday through Saturday Sept. 26, 8 p.m. except Sunday matinee at 3 p.m.

Twelve Miles West is a professional equity theater, with ongoing collaborations between top local and national artists. For almost 25 years, 12 Miles West has invigorated the New Jersey theater scene.

The Felician College Little Theatre was formerly the carriage house of the Ivison family, who resided in the historic “Iviswold Castle,” now a landmark building on the college’s Rutherford campus. The complex is used for staging plays, student productions and houses the college’s student-run radio station in the annex. It is at 230 Montross Ave., Rutherford and there is ample parking on site.

For tickets, e-mail theater@felician.edu or call (201)355-1465. For more information about the play, click here .
