Temple Theaters kicked off the new 2018- 2019 season with The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek by Naomi Wallace and the performance could not have been more timely. The play explores Dalton Chance’s teenage life as he finds himself entranced by the fearless and fascinating Pace Creegan. The performance is childlike and nostalgic but has a twist that will leave the audience a little shaken up. Amy Shoshana Blumberg (MFA ‘19) says the wicked twist of the play is a crucial clue into considering the social and political climate we face today.
Benny Douglas, professionally known as Benny Boom, will be visiting Temple University for a Q&A session as well as a screening of the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me on February 21, 2018 at 5:00 pm at the Temple Performing Arts Center.
