A liberal arts college in New England has decided to tear down its quirky, old, beloved, natural history museum and replace it with a state-of-the-art dormitory to boost revenue. A dean of the college, Wreen, must contend with the campus and town’s indignation--not to mention her own girlfriend's dismay--at this decision. Meanwhile, Wreen’s former lover Greer has had a relapse of her metastatic breast cancer and moves back in with Wreen and her new partner. Hilarity, heartache, and healing ensue in this poignant and acerbically funny play about queer love between women, town and gown relations, and alternative kinship structures.
Seats are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.
The event is free and open to the public. Campus visitors and members of the public must adhere to Cornell’s public health requirements for events, which include wearing masks while indoors and providing proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test.
