The Hunchback of Notre Dame, is an excellent adaptation of the Victor Hugo novel, with songs from the Disney animated movie. This exciting classic story portrays the story of the gypsy girl, Esmeralda, the honorable soldier Phoebus, the Archdeacon Frollo, and the hunchback Quasimodo. This Broadway version illuminates the theme of discrimination against those groups of people who exhibit differences in culture or ability.

How Can I Say This So You Will Stay? at Bowie State University, Sep 3

How Can I Say This So You Will Stay? at Bowie State University, Sep 3

BSU Theatre Presents:
How Can I Say This So You Will Stay?
Morgan McGuire is the playwright, and Susan Einhorn is the dramaturg and director.

September 3, 2019 at 7:30pm

Fine and Performing Arts Center, Main Stage Theater, Bowie State University.

“How Can I Say This So You Will Stay” is a fantastical journey through the research of Bowie State University’s Dr. Jacquelyn Sweeney and Kent State University’s Dr. Amy Damrow. The play follows a group of student teachers thrust into an academic study on the difficult dialogues we try to avoid in life with those who hold different ideological spaces than we do.

As the students delve into topics ranging from Black Lives Matter to the contentious 2016 election, the ways their politicized identities play out in their everyday lives become clearer to them and to those around them. The questions of who we really are and the tension that creates with the world around us come to the forefront. Do we stay in the room with that tension or do we leave? How can we stay?

The staged reading of this new play is funded by a National Endowment for the Arts grant.

Tickets: Free
