Culture Buzz: UTA Theatre Department Presents Heal the Divide On Campus

The newest Culture Buzz segment on MyArlingtonTV visits The University of Texas at Arlington for the Maverick Theatre Company’s HEAL THE DIVIDE ON CAMPUS, written and performed by students on April 4, 2018 in the Architecture Courtyard.

The pieces focused on topics that directly concern and impact or speak to the millennial generation, such as suicide in the LGBTQ+ community, sexual abuse and the Black Lives Matter movement.

The HEAL THE DIVIDE ON CAMPUS project was presented in conjunction with colleges and universities across the U.S. that wish to begin conversations about issues concerning their community through the lens of the student playwright. The colleges and universities that participated in the event include: California State, Long Beach, Iowa State University/KCACTF region 5, Southern Arkansas University, University of North Carolina-Charlotte, and Wake Forest University.

The plays performed at the event were written by UT Arlington students Erin Turner (graduated Dec. 2017), freshman Jorge Fuentes, junior Ta’Nisha Allen and junior Straton Rushing.
