Theatre for Social Justice

Amy LaneActivism comes to the stage in the Theatre for Social Justice course. The class kicked off at Creighton as part of the Climate Change Theatre Action, a worldwide effort to draw attention to the environmental crisis, which was held in concert with the United Nations’ Conference of the Parties gathering in Bonn, Germany, in November 2017. Creighton represented Nebraska in the project, which comprised institutions in nearly all 50 states in the Union and several dozen countries from around the world.

Led by Amy Lane, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts, the course brings together Creighton students and professional playwrights to create plays exploring multifaceted perspectives surrounding such social issues as immigration, climate change, and poverty in America.
