The play, written by Massachusetts playwright Madeleine George in 1995 when she was just 19, features four women discussing their lives and situations in society while sitting in the waiting room at a liposuction clinic. It was first performed on campus on Nov. 23, 2000 as part of a fall one-act theatre festival, at which time it was very well received and provoked great discussion.
Don Reed, associate professor and chair of the department of philosophy, said he thinks a lot more people would be well served to see the play. It features four women from very different backgrounds and life experiences who come together in a rather unusual place. They discuss what brought them there, and how they fit into today's American society.
The performance, directed by junior Ara Beal, a resident of Yellow Springs, Ohio, will take place in the Ness Family Auditorium in Wittenberg's Hollenbeck Hall and is open to the public at no charge. Reserved tickets will most likely be needed, however, and they can be secured by calling (937) 327-6336 or sending e-mail requests to email@example.com.
The four students in the play are freshman Amber Knerr (Carly) of Newark, Ohio, junior Monica Stein (Sabine) of Prairie View, Kan., freshman Sarah Henrickson (Cel) of Salem, Va. and junior Yvette Ryan (Rennie) of Lima, Ohio.
