The Department of Theater and Dance presents Peace in the Home, a play written and directed by MacKenzie Kugel ’20E about coming together for love, for family. It immerses its audience into the hearts and minds of seven characters wrestling with what it takes for two families from different cultural backgrounds and faiths to create peace in the home, together. This play is made of familial trials and joys, of aging parents, of what is lost and gained when children grow up.
Tickets are free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Reservations are encouraged. For ticket reservations, call (413) 542-2277.
