Monday - Social Work Community Day: 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. in the Palisades Room.

In the play, the farmer and his wife never actually appear; instead, the story focused on the prosecutor, George Henderson, who has been called it to investigate the murder; Henry Peters, the local sheriff; Lewis Hale, a neighboring farmer who discovered Wright's body; and Mrs. Peters and Mrs. Hale, wives to the two local men. This event is co-sponsored by HC/DC.
