The play Commencing by award-winning playwright Jane Shepard will be performed this weekend on campus.

Synopsis: The beautiful Kelli can’t wait for the blind date her office mates have set her up with, until it turns out to be one very disappointed lesbian named Arlin. Mutually appalled, yet appallingly intrigued, they commence to pull the screws loose on both straight & gay women’s culture, to find the common ground underneath in the search for love and identity. (from)

The major themes of the work include the tension between gay and straight women’s culture, (angry) feminism, and the experience of being a woman in America. If you enjoy reading HappyBodies, you will almost certainly enjoy this show.

Thu, Fri, Sat
March 4-6
Nourse Little Theater
Make reservations (show is free):

After Friday’s performance there will be a talk-back session and the director would love to hear your feedback.
