The University of Texas at Arlington’s Maverick Theatre Company presents HEAL THE DIVIDE ON CAMPUS. Presentation date is March 30th at 1 pm, 2019.
HEAL THE DIVIDE ON CAMPUS presented by the University of Texas at Arlington, Department of Theatre Arts on March 30th at 1pm-3pm in the Art Gallery is comprised of original one-act plays written and performed by students from the Department of Theatre Arts. The pieces focus on topics that directly concern and impact or speak to the millennial generation, such as suicide in the LGBTQ+ Community, Drug abuse, DACA, Sexual Abuse, and the Black Lives Matter movement, among others. HEAL THE DIVIDE ON CAMPUS project is presented in conjunction with colleges and universities across the U.S. that wish to begin conversations about issues concerning their community through the lens of the student playwright. A key to the event is to get local with the material, and to share insight into each community’s current issues of concern.
HEAL THE DIVIDE ON CAMPUS is presented by a group of students writing plays representing the University of Texas at Arlington community including junior Nancy Palacio, freshman Devin Sternes, junior Jonathan Ramirez, freshman Dragon Tran and senior Straton Rushing. The supervisor and coordinator of the group is Theatre Professor Detra Payne.
Plan to join us for this free event that promises to be moving and enlightening.
