Nobel award winner

The Allegheny College Playshop Theatre commences its 2006-2007 season with an original work titled “But Not For Love” by Matthew A. Everett, directed by Martin Scott Marchitto. Performances will be presented on Friday, Sept. 15 and Saturday, Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. Following Friday's performance, Mark LaPointe of the Allegheny College communication arts department and college chaplain Jane Ellen Nickell will lead a discussion.

Provocative and inspiring, “But Not For Love” examines the controversial subject of same-sex marriage and presents arguments for and against. The play is a timely inquiry into some of the most compelling moral questions of our time: What is marriage? What is love? What is right or wrong? And more important—who gets to decide and who should decide?

Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka was in Pittsburgh this weekend dedicating a home for exiled writers. It's part of the Cities of Asylum program.
