Something Theatrical

University Theatre stages <em>Waiting To Be Invited </em>

It’s not just a lunch date, but an act of bravery that’s behind Waiting To Be Invited, the award-winning drama that will be performed by Western’s University Theatre Sept. 22–Oct. 8.

The play tells the story of four middle-aged black women in the summer of 1964 in Atlanta who are traveling by city bus to a whites-only eating establishment inside a downtown Atlanta department store to test their newly acquired civil rights.

Tickets are $10–$23 and available at wmich.edu/theatre/ticket-office.
