Don’t Miss This: Witness Uganda

A socially-conscious New York actor visits Uganda and decides to make a difference, teaching orphans and then raising money for their education upon his return home. What could go wrong? In Witness Uganda, the score, the play, the players, and the audience all wrestle with what quickly grow into big, often unfriendly questions about people, money, culture, faith, truth, and the measures of helping and giving. Written by young talents Matt Gould and Griffin Matthews, tony nominee Diane Paulus directs two workshop performances at Columbia’s Miller Theatre January 31st. Don’t miss this. - COLE LOUISON
