Drama by Fay Kanin
Director Alisa DeMers
Assistant Director Kimberly Zerr
A Broadway hit set in 1948 about a liberal Congresswoman who returns to her old school as an honorary visitor. Since her wartime experiences in Europe, Agatha Reed has devoted herself to the task of acquainting people with the horrors of war. That is why she has brought a documentary with her to be shown to the young graduates. The movie is considered harsh and improper by the trustees, so she has a fight on her hands. The conflict exposes the university president as a spineless and irresolute figure, instead of the upstanding and outspoken professor with whom Miss Reed thought she had been in love with for so many years. The 1951 movie starred Joan Crawford.
“It is amusing, it is likeable, and it is certainly on the side of the angels.” – New York Post
