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.
