Christian theater company presenting new play on Dorothy Day this summer


Acacia Theatre Company in Milwaukee will present a two-act play about the life of Dorothy Day, co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement, in July.

The play, titled "This Other Love" and written by Patty McCarty, takes place in August 1927, during a time Day was struggling with her growing spirituality and relationship with her common-law husband, Forster Batterham. The play addresses Day following God's call to work with the poor. Janet Bouman Peterson is the play's production director.
