FOR­GET the class­room – the stage is where it is at for a group of Univer­sity of Notre Dame stu­dents.

The stu­dent-pro­duced and per­formed Per­spec­tives will be split into a se­ries of short scenes to tackle con­tro­ver­sial so­cial is­sues that peo­ple face ev­ery day from both sides of the ar­gu­ment.

Per­spec­tives di­rec­tor Paige New­mark said the play would ex­plore fun­da­men­tal is­sues that ex­isted around the world day in, day out.

“We con­stantly have the roles of gen­der, preg­nancy, love and pre­sented to us in sim­plis­tic ways in magazines, on tele­vi­sion, and on so­cial me­dia,” he said.

“By per­form­ing the com­plex­ity of these is­sues in to­day’s so­ci­ety, Per­spec­tives gives an au­then­tic and real voice to the theatre which other me­dia forms sim­ply can­not pro­vide.

“Au­di­ences are in a unique po­si­tion where they are con­fronted by events and pre­sented with choices that are not easy to make.”

Per­spec­tives will be at Notre Dame’s Prindivill­e Hall stu­dio theatre from Oc­to­ber 20 to 22.
