    When eight women gather at Fefu's New England home to plan an event, their interactions reveal the desires, fears, and hallucinations lurking just beneath the surface of their polished demeanors. Set in 1935, Fefu and Her Friends is a provocative, feminist exploration of the expectations, inconsistencies, and double standards that even the most aristocratic women endured - and continue to endure. The second act of the play, set in a house, creating the sense that one is merely a fly on the wall, touring Fefu's home with the rest of her guests. Director Leslie Swackhamer says, 'Thus, the audience experiences the play from a multitude of perspectives. The audience constructs different meanings through different chronologies of viewing.'

    Performance Schedule: October 12-14 and 18-20 at 8:00pm; October 20-21 at 2:00pm.

      These undergraduates performed an extremely difficult work with such ease! Character development was crucial and this was a wonderful production.
