Friday, October 2nd

7:00 PM

Kresge Recital Hall, CFA


A professional African-American woman is invited to the home of a successful Jewish man for a potential business project. After the meeting he realizes that his family heirloom watch is gone.

Hereby hangs the story of DEFAMATION, wherein this very dilemma leads to a riveting courtroom encounter that illuminates our common perceptions about race, religion and class. The case is not a simple “he said, she said.” A case without a smoking gun, DEFAMATION challenges our preconceived notions about race, class, religion and even the law.
