UI Theatre Arts Department and the Obermann Intergenre Working Group present the play STILL by Jen Silverman, a staged reading directed by Meredith Alexander.

Forty-one-year old Morgan’s baby has been born dead and eighteen-year-old Dolores is pregnant with a child she doesn’t want. Morgan's midwife Elena, shaken by guilt, has abandoned her practice to seek redemption in the strangest of places. As all three women confront their fears, their desires, and each other, dead baby Constantinople roams the world, searching for the meaning of the word “wow,” a satisfying explanation of S&M, and above all, his mother. The play takes inspiration from Elizabeth Heineman's memoir, Ghostbelly, which is forthcoming with Feminist Press.

The audience is invited to stay after the performance for a discussion.
