Class of ’94
“Class of ’94” is WSU’s final theatrical performance for the semester. Presented by the Telitha E. Lindquist College of Arts & Humanities, the show opens on April 10 and runs through April 14.
WSU writes, “the play was commissioned by award-winning director Jenny Kokai from nationally recognized playwright Diana Grisanti specifically for WSU, thanks to the Hurst Visiting Artist Grant. The result is a sensitive and thought-provoking examination of the public response to sexual assault and the way it impacts an educational community.”
