David Shipler: Discussions on the Impact of Poverty: Center Hall 216, 4:15PM
Families who exist at or near the poverty line even as they work face multiple interacting challenges. The chain reactions among the issues they face are often surprising: for example, how poor housing can lead to a medical problem (children’s asthma in particular), which can lead to unpaid bills, damage a credit rating, and result in a high interest rate for a car loan. Or, how the lack of government housing subsidies can mean a rent payment so high that it squeezes out money for food, resulting in children’s malnutrition. (Refreshments available at 4 PM.)

The Pitmen Painters by Lee Hall
Directed by Heidi Winters Vogel
February 20-23, 2019
Lee Hall’s drama tells the true story of a group of miners in Newcastle, England, in the 1930s who discover a passion for painting and become celebrated artists in their own right. Stymied by an attempt to engage his pupils with photos of famous paintings none of them have ever heard of, a visiting art professor gets the bright idea to let the miners learn by doing. The so-called Ashington Group becomes the toast of London, attracting patrons and gallery shows. But their success is not without cost.
The Pitmen Painters premiered at the Live Theatre, Newcastle upon Tyne in 2007.
