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
"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 www.uwyo.edu/finearts
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
