"Land of Plenty" wrestles with the conundrum of ideals of equal opportunity and realities of inequality in our country's past and present. Written by Sara Thomsen and directed by Tom Isbell, the production portrays a land of welcome and abundance alongside a land of exclusion and forced relocation. Drama, song, art and spoken word intertwine to create an odyssey of origins, a quest for equity.Tickets for the performance are $15 suggested donation for Adults and $5 suggested donation for Students, Children, Seniors or Limited Income. Tickets are available at the UMD Multicultural Center, UMD Kirby Info Desk, At Sara's Table, and online or by phone at Brown Paper Tickets: www.brownpapertickets.com or call 1-800-838-3006.
