Le Moyne College Presents "These Shining Lives"

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release)… The Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Le Moyne College will present “These Shining Lives” by Melanie Marnich. Performance schedule is as follows:

“These Shining Lives” chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Catherine and her friends are dying, it's true; but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them.

"[Marnich] has an ear for warm, natural dialogue that eschews snarky quips and truisms…the play's linguistic honesty satisfies." —Time Out NY.

"…has a humanistic glow…clockwork precision…an initially comic and ultimately tragic look at how individual women find employment within a system more concerned with profit than safety." —Variety.

"Perfect, touching and wistful…beautifully tragic." —Talkin' Broadway.

This Le Moyne College production of “These Shining Lives” will be under the direction of former Director of Visual and Performing Arts William S. Morris. Scenery will be designed by Karel Blakeley and costumes designed by Meggan Camp.

Ticket prices are $15 for adults, $10 for senior citizens and $4 for students. For additional information and ticket reservations, please call the W. Carroll Coyne Center for the Performing Arts at (315) 445-4523 or visit www.lemoyne.edu/vpa.
