Samsara Saturday Night

Matthew Donahue ’14 writes in for Sammmmsara on Saturday:

Samsara is the annual South Asian culture show here at Wesleyan, and this year it’s back with a bang! Come join us for fun and laughter as you enjoy a show that combines theater, music, dance and above all, a love for South Asia! This year we are happy to welcome back the nationally acclaimed dance team from Brown Univeristy, Brown Badmaash, to join in our festivities, and we hope to get a big turnout because all of our proceeds will go towards helping provide clean water in the slums of Bangladesh and helping ensure education is universally available in certain provinces of India. Tickets are available at the box office. This is definitely something you WON’T want to miss!

Casting Call: “An Eye for an Eye”

From Sarah-Jane Ripa:

Shot in the face and left for dead because of how you might pray. Abandoned by hope, love, and the system. Your attacker convicted and put on Death Row. What would you do?

“An Eye for an Eye” is the story of what one man, placed in these extraordinary circumstances did do: he forgave his attacker, and began a journey that will end when there is a World Without Hate. If you would like to participate in an open reading of the play “An Eye for an Eye” please visit here for audition information. The reading will take place as part of Homecoming/Family weekend at 7 PM on October 19. Auditions will be held Thursday, September 13. Email sripa(at)wesleyan(dot)edu with any questions.
