BFA’s Journey of Dead Man Walking

  • March: Brown bag lunch discussion sets the stage for an enriching production!

Naropa’s cast of Dead Man Walking watched and reflected on Sister Helen Prejean’s visit to Naropa last spring and shared their first thoughts and concerns on addressing the death penalty in this production. They gathered for a lunch meeting to discuss the DMW project with Candace Walworth, Peace Studies chair, Lee Worley, faculty member of the Performance and Education departments and Martine McDonald, alumna of the Peace Studies program.

“It was a fourth of a mile but spiritually I traveled a galaxy, because I finally saw poor people.”
