More Light
By Bryony Lavery
November 17-19 at 8 p.m. | November 20 at 2 p.m. | Anderson Theatre
Henry MacCarthy, Director | Aaron Bogen'16, Original Music and Sound Design
This daring story takes us deep within the tomb of a powerful Emperor in a faraway land, where his wives that never bore him sons, have been sealed alive with the former ruler. The play examines the lives of these women and their relationships, as they struggle with moral choices and survival. A poetic, breathtaking journey of loss, discovery and empowerment. 

Phone Books Available...The local Saint Peter and area Mankato phone books are now both available in the switchboard office of Telecommunications in the lower level of Olin Hall. Stop by for updated copies at your convenience.

Saint Peter Weekly Newsletter... As we continue to find ways to strengthen our partnership with the City of Saint Peter we would like to share this link to their weekly newsletter. Be sure to read it for the latest information about the greater Saint Peter community.
