Xavier Theatre is pleased to announce the next production in their 2013-2014 season. FROM WHITE PLAINS, by Michael Perlman and members of Fault Line Theatre Company will open this Friday, February 14 and run through February 22 in the Gallagher Student Center Theatre. Seating is limited.

After a shocking announcement on international television, 30-year-old Ethan Rice finds himself finally having to confront who he was and what he did as a teenager. FROM WHITE PLAINS follows four men, straight and gay, as they attempt to take responsibility for past actions and move beyond them, aided and frustrated by social media and viral videos. The play examines how male relationships change as boys grow into men and asks who speaks for a victim of bullying when he is no longer here to speak for himself. 

Just because it gets better doesn't mean it didn't happen. 

"...This gripping and full-blooded drama, conceived and directed by Michael Perlman, is so full of insight about prejudice, empathy, and the limits of forgiveness that it ought to be required viewing..." -NYTheatre.com

Xavier's production is directed by Craig Wesley Divino, a cast member of the original production of the play, and Co-Artistic Director of Fault Line Theatre in New York City. A question & answer session will follow each production.

The Department of Music & Theatre has also created a series of events surrounding the play to allow for discussion concerning the play's themes of bullying and growing up. They are as follows:
