Livingstone College presents play about diabetes

The Livingstone College Theatre Arts Department has collaborated with Wake Forest University to create a play about type 2 diabetes.
Called “Project D,” the play seeks to educate its audience about the disease in a compelling way.
The play opens as Emma and her nephew are coming from Emma’s husband’s funeral. Emma, who owns a bakery with her family, is not feeling very well. She is stressed that her husband has died. She knew he died of diabetes, and now she is showing symptoms of the disease and soon is diagnosed with it. The 30-minute play explores what happens to her and is intended to start a dialogue and provoke discussion about a preventable disease that is rapidly becoming the biggest public health challenge of a generation.
Written and directed by Michael Connor, the play is being done in conjunction with Wake Forest University’s Dr. Ron Bell and Dr. David Mount of the Maya Angelou Research Center on Minority Health.
It will be presented in the Tubman Little Theatre on the Livingstone Campus at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, Friday, Nov. 2, Saturday, Nov. 3 and Sunday, Nov. 4. There will also be a matinee on Sunday, Nov. 4 at 2:30 p.m. Admission is free; donations will be accepted.
Contact Professor Michael Connor at 704-216-6260 or mconnor@livingstone.edu for further information.
