CLIMB Theater to present ‘A Deeper Look’

CLIMB Theater will present the play, “A Deeper Look,” at 5 p.m. Monday, April 16, in Figliulo Recital Hall.

The event, co-sponsored by the First-Generation Initiative and the  Office of Campus Ministry, is open to the SMU community.

CLIMB is an acronym for Creative Learning Ideas for Mind and Body. The goal of the group is to make audiences aware of attitudes towards others. Words used to describe this play have been “awesome, powerful, amazing, surprising, subversive, poignant, thought-provoking, fabulous and moving.”

CLIMB’s website states, “We enter the stage as African Americans, Asians, Native Americans, Latinos and Caucasians. Because you see us, you naturally think you know us. Our personal stories, bravely told through monologues, scenes, music, dance and slides will take you on a journey of deeper understanding — not just of us, but of yourself.”

A discussion will follow the performance.
