Hendrix Players Present ‘The Hope Hypothesis’
February 22 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am CST
The Hendrix Players and the Hendrix College Department of Theatre Arts and Dance present four performances of Cat Miller’s dark comedy The Hope Hypothesis in Cabe Theatre on the Hendrix College campus, 1600 Washington Avenue in Conway.
Performance times are 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, Feb. 22-24, and 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25. Admission is free, but reservations are required and may be made through Eventbrite.
The plot of The Hope Hypothesis centers on Amena Qamar, a model immigrant. A refugee from war-torn Syria, she has fled to the United States and fully embraced the American way of life, graduated from college, and is finishing up her third year of law school. Her goal is to bring the cherished American principles of protection under rule of law to the world by working in international humanitarian law. But when pursuing her path towards citizenship reveals a flaw in her paperwork, Amena’s plans are suddenly put in peril. She must overcome the suspicions about her past by of those in authority to avoid deportation… or worse.
William Ragsdale, a native of El Dorado, Arkansas, and a 1983 Hendrix College graduate, has returned to campus as the Murphy Visiting Theatre Director for this production.
