Bill and Sherri are white, progressive and proud. Respectively the headmaster and dean of admissions of a New Hampshire boarding school, they’ve dedicated their 15-year tenure to diversifying the school’s mostly white population. But when their high-achieving son’s Ivy League dreams are crushed, the family’s reaction betrays a schism between their public values and their private aspirations. An incisively funny look at privilege, power, and the perils of whiteness. Directed by Carla Milarch. Admissions features Joe Bailey, Sarah Burcon, Diane Hill, Jeremy Kucharek, and Cynthia Szczesny. September 20 - October 13, 2019 Thursday, Friday, Saturdays: 8pm, Sundays: 2pm 734-635-8450

Ann Patchett

Mon., Oct. 14, 7 p.m.
Rackham Auditorium 915 E. Washington St., Ann Arbor Greater Ann Arbor Area


In her latest book, The Dutch House, author Ann Patchett keeps with her penchant for telling a story over decades. A follow-up to 2016’s Commonwealth, in which the New York Times bestselling author explores infidelity and its lasting effects on two families, The Dutch House examines abandonment, after Elna Conroy leaves her family in posh 1940s Philadelphia to pursue her dreams of being a nun. Meanwhile, her two children and husband are left behind, as the siblings struggle to define their future by redefining their past. The event, during which Patchett will discuss her latest work and conduct a Q&A, will also benefit the Book Industry Charitable Foundation, which works to support independent-bookstore employees and their families.

Isango Ensemble is a South African theater company that draws its artists from the townships surrounding Cape Town. The company reimagines classics from the Western theater canon while finding new context for the stories within a South African township setting, thereby creating inventive work relevant to the heritage of the nation and a “joyful fusion of two cultures.” (Boston Globe) For their UMS debut, they present three performances of The Magic Flute, which features Mozart’s score transcribed for an orchestra of marimbas.

Zell Visiting Writers Series: CM Burroughs, Poetry Reading

Thu., Oct. 17, 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Onsite book sales will be provided by Literati Bookstore. (734) 764-0395; (734) 764-3731 (FAX)
