Studio Theater


by Russell Sharman
Roland Cole, eminent historian and chair of the African Studies program at a rural state university, is caught up in a scandal involving the creation of fake classes to pass star athletes. He must choose between his dean’s advice to do what is best for the university, and his daughter’s urgent call to fight for his students and dismantle a system he himself may have helped to create. A play about race, class, college football—and the marriage practices of the Western Dinka.
