UW Student Presents Play on Health Care

Oct. 23, 2009 -- The University of Wyoming Department of Theatre and Dance and the UW Playwrights will present "Heart in Hand," a new work by UW senior playwriting student Chris Browne.

"Heart in Hand" runs Friday and Saturday, Oct. 30 and 31, at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Studio Theatre. All tickets cost $5. For tickets and information, call the Fine Arts Center box office at (307) 766-6666 or go online at

Browne's play follows Josh, a young medical student whose fascination with healing turns to obsession when he encounters Sarah, a young addict who needs more healing than medicine alone can provide. Josh's determination to save Sarah takes him down a dangerous road that threatens to destroy everything he has worked for, while violent ghosts from Sarah's past aim to deny her the salvation she seeks.

UW alumna, Claudine Mboligikpelani Nako, directs this production. She says audience members don't need to be informed about the politics surrounding medical ethics to appreciate the story.

"Everyone can relate to the humor and sadness that comes from the human desperation for something to believe in," says Nako.Posted on Friday, October 23, 2009
