Dr. Brandi Andrade from UTA's Theater Arts Dept. will present a dramatic reading of "A Jury of Her Peers", a story by Susan Glaspell.
The murder mystery was once adapted into an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and broadcast under the title "Trifles." The story was loosely based on the murder of John Hossack, which Glaspell covered while working as a journalist.
Professor Andrade has a Ph.D. in Feminist Aesthetics and Theatre from the University of Texas at Dallas. She is a producing partner at Echo Theatre, where she is the Artistic Director of a popular reading series introducing audiences to the work of significant women playwrights of the past and present. She has studied theatre in London as well, and performed in theatres as far-flung as Hawaii, Arizona, and Oklahoma; closer to home, she has worked in most of the theatres in the metroplex.
