The Department of Theater and Senior Company 2012 presented Fefu and Her Friends by Marie Irene Fornes. This production took place in an off-campus house for a small audience.

Written by renowned playwright Maria Irene Fornes, this Obie-award winning play takes place in Fefu's home in the 1930s. As we move through scenes in different parts of the house and eavesdrop on the reminiscing and philosophizing of some old college friends, we become intimately involved in Fefu's mysterious world. Fornes' masterpiece draws funny yet chilling portraits of women who, though they inhabit a world almost a century old, remain eerily recognizable today. Fornes herself directed the original production in 1977 in New York with the New York Theatre Strategy at the Relativity Media Lab.

Featuring Ryane Disken-Cahill '12, Michelle Fennell '12, Lori Barkin '12, Katie Goldman '14, Maddie Charne '14, Elliana Bisgaard-Church '13, Hannah Kosman '14 and Jessica Cannizzaro '12 with sets and costumes by Professor Laila Swanson. The faculty advisor for this production was Professor K. Elizabeth Stevens.
