Performance | Radio Theater presents: The Awful Truth (1937)


The screwball comedy The Awful Truth epitomizes the comedies of the late 30's and 40's, as remembered in the movie with Cary Grant and Irene Dunne. The play was written in 1921, and Sydnie Grosberg Ronga has adapted the story for radio. The story begins with a happy married couple, Jerry and Lucy Warriner, who find themselves headed to divorce court when they begin to doubt each other's fidelity. They file for divorce quickly, but soon regret their hasty actions. Before their divorce becomes final, Jerry and Lucy Warriner both do their best to ruin each other's plans for remarriage, Jerry to haughty socialite Molly Lamont, she to oil-rich bumpkin Daniel Leeson. Custody of the dog keeps Jerry close to Lucy, and Lucy impersonates his 'sister' to foil his budding romance with Molly. Soon, it's a madcap race to bring the lovebirds back together.

Lesson | Democracy and Voting Rights in the United States: A Contested History


This course will interrogate the history of democratic participation in the United States, with an emphasis on disparities in access to the ballot, racial discrimination, and violence, which continue to exclude voters from the franchise. We will start with an overview of the historical development of democratic inclusion, exclusion, and participation in the United States, and then focus on how social, political and economic institutions intersect with and inform this development. The second half of the course will focus on the ways that democratic participation in the United States is mediated and informed by the carceral state, the regulation of citizenship, political power, wealth, redistricting, and contemporary voter suppression efforts. The class will conclude with a discussion of current efforts to secure and expand voting rights in the United States, focusing on a selection of promising innovations, reforms, and movement building projects.   Saturdays, October 6, 20, 27, November 3, and 10 from 3:00 - 4:30pm.

Performance | Lights Up/Fade to Black: 3 Short Plays


Theater of Light presents the fourth bi-annual production of Lights Up/Fade to Black, an hour of rejuvenating and light-hearted theater made of three short new plays. Play I: A conversation could be a flirtation, she is charming but there is something alarming, what she is planning for today? Play II: It is true, love is for forever but this guy is in a deep haze, figuring out just which who is who; two wives what is he going to do? Play III: She comes to see the doctor about all her crazy quirks, he has quite a diagnosis, will she need hypnosis?
