Music & Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
Book by Peter Duchan
Directed by Victoria Bussert
Choreographed by Gregory Daniels
Musical Direction by David Pepin
In collaboration with the Beck Center for the Arts
This hauntingly beautiful musical was praised by critics and
nominated for nearly every award available, including winning
the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Based on
the 1991 Warner Brothers film, Dogfight takes audiences on a
romantic and heartbreaking theatrical journey. It’s November
21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to a small but growing
conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one
final boys’ night of debauchery, partying and maybe a little
trouble. But when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an
awkward and idealistic waitress, he enlists to win a cruel bet with
his fellow recruits. She rewrites the rules of the game and teaches
him the power of compassion.

By Tennessee Williams
Directed by Dr. Jack Winget
This Pulitzer Prize winning play is often considered
the greatest American Drama ever written. Williams
exposes the emotional lies governing relationships
in a wealthy Southern family while exploring the
human experience and our inability to communicate,
which inevitably leads to loneliness. Williams
maintained that instead of writing characters an
audience can root for, the heroes of Cat on a Hot Tin
Roof are not persons, but the qualities in people that
allow them to survive.

Faith & Life Lecture Series
Three presentations on the theme
“Thomas Merton and
Thomas Berry: Pathfinders
to an Ecological Age”
Sr. Kathleen Deignan, CND
Merton and Berry - two of the most remarkable
20th century spiritual masters - come together in
an intensive conversation animated by Dr. Kathleen
Deignan, CND. As prophets and culture critics,
both wisdom teachers announced the perils and
crises of our moment. As visionaries and poets,
they saw the new frontiers of human spiritual
evolution, languaged them into clarity, and charted
revelatory maps to guide us forward from our
wasteland worlds into regions of greater vitality,
depth and solidarity with all life.

What distinguishes genocide
from non-genocidal mass
murders? Is genocide the worst
evil imaginable? What kinds of groups are
possible targets of genocide? Must genocide
be massively homicidal? What underlies
the sense that genocide is necessarily an
evil? Dr. Card’s hypothesis is that the idea of
social death is helpful for making headway
with these questions. In developing this
hypothesis, she will present and draw on her
theory of evil, which she calls “the atrocity
