ISU seal projected

The one-person play, The New Faces of America, will be presented Thursday, Feb. 17, at 7 p.m. in the Bone Student Center Circus Room. The performance, sponsored by Diversity Advocacy, is free and open to the public.

The play has been described as “the first truly multicultural portrayal of Americans ever created.” The production covers a wide range of ethnic, socioeconomic and religious issues with monologues taken from interviews of college-aged students recounting their experiences.

The New Faces of America is a 65-minute, one-woman show presenting characters of seven incredibly different backgrounds. The audience will hear the stories of a female, biracial college student; a southern gay minister; a young female veteran from the Iraq War; a Native American teenager; a young migrant worker; an Appalachian college student; and a deaf African American.
