Byrum Auditorium will host performances of the play Living Out by Lisa Loomer on April 17-19 and 25-26.

Living Out tells the story of the complicated relationship between a Salvadoran nanny and her Anglo employer. Both women are smart, hard-working mothers. Both want better lives for their children. This play explores the shared humanity between them and the differences wrought by race, class, and Ana's illegal status.

According to Variety, the play is, "A bitingly funny new comedy. The plight of working mothers is explored from two pointedly contrasting perspectives in this sympathetic, sensitive new play."

The play starts at 7:30 on April 17-19 and 25-26. Tickets cost $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and military and $5 for students. Contact the Byrum Hall box office at 765-641-4351 for more information.
