Lorenzo Cultural Center Exhibit and Play - The 70's: Heavy, Hip and Happenin'


Lorenzo Cultural Center Exhibit and Play: The 70’s: Heavy, Hip and Happenin’

Friday, April 12

Defined by events like the Watergate Scandal, the Fall of Saigon and the Iran Hostage Crisis, the 1970’s was a decade of turbulence. Social movements for women’s rights and the environment were juxtaposed against disco music and sitcoms. The Lorenzo Cultural center exhibit explores the rich history of this fascinating decade. Before our tour of the exhibit, we will watch Turmoil and Transition in the 70s.  This original play, written by Michigan-based playwright Kristin Hanratty, explores the themes of a decade that changed America. From “the silent majority” and war protesters, to a game show exploring the changing women’s rights landscape, to dancing “The Hustle”, you won’t want to miss what promises to be a compelling piece of theatre. Lunch at Bar Louie at Partridge Creek.

$32 per person (includes bus transportation, exhibit and play; lunch on your own)
