Meadows hopes to gather more SMU attention

The SMU Meadows School of the Arts is a place to get your fix for all types of performances. 

Throughout the academic year, Meadows students rehearse and perfect their roles for upcoming shows. 

Their hard work often goes unseen by the SMU population, but Meadows performers would like this to change. 

This week is the opening of “Mrs. Warren’s Profession” by George Bernard Shaw.

It tells the story of a woman’s secret life as a prostitute and her independent, well-educated daughter’s discovery of her hidden profession.

Written in 1893, the play was not freely performed until 1925, due to its allusion to prostitution.
Students are encouraged to attend and show support.

“A lot of students say they want to attend but don’t get any information about the plays,” Meadows senior Ozioma Akagha said. “This play is special and it would be great to get the word out to everyone.”

“Mrs. Warren’s Profession” opens today and runs through Sunday, April 11, in the Greer Garson Theatre located in the Owens Arts Center. 

Tickets are $13 for adults, $10 for seniors and $7 for students, faculty and staff.
