DETAILS: CUA's Department of Drama presents "A Perfect Ganesh" by Terrence McNally. In this touching and humorous Pulitzer Prize-nominated play, two outwardly unremarkable middle-aged women decide to forgo their annual vacation with their husbands. Instead, Margaret Civil and Katharine Brynne - friends through their social connections and comfortable, upper-class New England lifestyles - book a two-week tour to India seeking adventure, insight and a "place to heal."

The play will be directed by Matt Ripa, a graduate student in CUA's M.F.A. directing program.

Tickets: $12 general admission, $8 for senior citizens and CUA alumni/staff and $5 for students.
