The Lewis Center for the Arts’ Program in Theater will premiere This is an Elephant, written and directed by senior Ava Geyer and featuring senior Kanoa Mulling, on October 17 at the Marie and Edward ’53 Acting Studio at 185 Nassau Street. Distant fathers, fractured marriages, absent mothers, vying siblings all collide in this exploration of the chasm between what we need to express and what we're allowed to say in this new work.

John Somers Fairchild '15, Yessica Martinez '15, and Tula B. Strong '15 have been selected by the Lewis Center for the Arts as the 2014 recipients of the Alex Adam ’07 Award. Each will spend the summer pursuing a project that will result in the creation of new artistic work.
