Through July 29, the Premiere Stages at Kean University in Union will present the play "Handicapped People in Their Formal Attire." The website at http://www.kean.edu/premierestages describes the play as follows:
"In 1968, members of the Delaware Association for the Handicapped kick up their heels at a black tie fundraiser to honor quadriplegic, Agnes Sheehan, who is escorted by her able-bodied cousin, Theresa. As the tensions of the era erupt outside, a lifetime of pent-up resentment is unleashed between the two women as they confront the true meaning of sacrifice."
Student tickets are $15; regular admission is $20 to $30 for the play which will take place at the Zella Fry Theatre in the Vaughn Eames Building on the campus.
Performances will begin at 8 pm on Thursdays and Fridays and at 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
