From the ancient Greeks to Dr. Seuss, we are reminded to think of, respect and care for others and those who may not be like ourselves. In light of our current national climate as well as the College of Arts & Sciences Symposium Against Indifference whose theme for 2017-2018 will be "Building Bridges through Dialogue", the 2017.2018 Theatre Season will provide opportunities to better understand ourselves and others with performances that encourage dialogue about challenges in our world today.
