BALZAC AND THE LITTLE CHINESE SEAMSTRESS
UNC CAMPUS—Many of us enjoy browsing old books with the hopes of unearthing a treasure. Rob Hamilton, technical director at UNC's Department of Communications Studies, found such a book. Balzac and The Little Chinese Seamstress takes place during China's Cultural Revolution, when thousands of intellectuals were forcibly "re-educated." Hamilton adapted it for the stage, complete with masks, live music, multimedia and puppets. Performed by UNC staff, alumni and people from the Triangle, the play runs from June 14 to July 1. For more info, call 843-3333 or visit comm.unc.edu. —Megan Stein
