Student Body
By Frank Winters
Directed by Deb Keller

A college party. A video recording. A possible sexual assault. College students become locked in an intense moral argument over how to treat a sexual encounter that happened in their midst. (Broadway Publishing Inc.)

Post-show discussions will take place following Saturday evening performances on February 16 and 23.

In January 2018, college producers from around the Midwest saw the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point production of STUDENT BODY at the Region 3 - Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in Indianapolis. One year later, three of those Michigan colleges are now presenting their own productions: Kalamazoo College in late February, Albion College in April, and Lansing Community College Feb. 15-24. What drew these schools to Frank Winters' drama is how loyalties and friendships confuse a seemingly straightforward ethical dilemma.
