"Hot L Baltimore" at Monroe Campus Tonight!

If you’re interested in classic American drama, you won’t want to miss this event! Starting tonight (Friday, April 24) at 7:30 p.m., the Monroe Campus Community Room will host a student production of Lanford Wilson’s play The Hot L Baltimore.” The NCC web site describes the play:

This Pulitzer Prize winner focuses on the residents of a rundown hotel (so seedy that it has lost the “e” from its marquee). This “day-in-the-life” drama records their everyday encounters, both human comedy and tragedy. The resulting mosaic becomes a poignant, powerful call to America to recover lost values and to restore itself in its own – and the world’s – eyes.
