"Spinning Into Butter"

The College of Engineering presents a play that explores the dangers of racism and political correctness.

Saturday, January 20, 2018 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

"Spinning Into Butter," a play by Bag&Baggage Productions, explores the dangers of both racism and political correctness in America; a story seemingly ripped from today's headlines and uniquely relevant to our political culture. 

When one of the few African American students at liberal Belmont College begins receiving hate mail, the campus erupts, first with shock, then with mutual recrimination as faculty and students alike try to prove their own tolerance by condemning one another. At the center of this maelstrom is Sarah Daniels, the Dean of Students. As the administration sponsors public “race forums” and the students start activist groups, Sarah is forced to explore her own feelings of racism. Her self-examination leads to some surprising discoveries and painful insights, the consequences of which even she can’t predict.

  • Saturday, Jan. 20, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
