Salem State College Presents Pulitzer-Winning Comedy

Have you seen a play in Salem State's Callan Studio Theatre? It's a wonderful venue - tiny... if you are in the front row, your feet may touch the stage, and if you're in the back row, watch your head on the ceiling - and intimate and wonderfully personal. If you have not yet experienced theater at Salem State or the Callan Studio Theatre, your chance is here! Crimes of the Heart opens this Thursday.

Here's the skinny...

The award-winning theatre department of Salem State College presents Beth Henley’s Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy, Crimes of the Heart, also winner of the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Prize.

Written by a female playwright, Crimes is directed from a female perspective, by Professor Celena Sky April, with lead roles performed by three female students, Katelyn Collins, last scene as Sophia in the fall production of Neil Simon’s Fools, with Priscilla Swain, and Lauren Bambera.

Says April: “Bring your sisters. This is a show about sisterhood, returning home, healing wounds with laughter.”
