Beginning Tuesday March 20, UGA Theatre presents “BFE” by Julia Cho, directed by professor Farley Richmond:

Panny is an ordinary 14-year-old Korean American girl living in a typical suburb, but not everything is as idyllic as it first appears. Her low self esteem is exacerbated when her agoraphobic mother offers plastic surgery to soften her Asian features as a birthday present.

Directed by professor George Contini, UGA Theatre presents Lisa D’Amour’s Detroit, in which an all-American backyard barbeque turns into a menacing affair when mysterious new neighbors upend the lives of an average couple, beginning this weekend:
