Faculty and students involved in Catawba College's upcoming production of Dr. Janice Moore Fuller's world premiere experimental work, Machine Play or I'm Not Nadine, will offer a one–hour symposium Thursday, October 19 in which they discuss the collaborative process of creating the production. The symposium is scheduled between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Rowan Public Library at 201 W.

The playwright, director, student designers and student actors will share their experience of developing the play over the course of a spring '06 class and a two- week summer residence at the Polli Talu Arts Center in Estonia (Baltics). A question and answer session will follow the presentation. Refreshments will be served.
