A play about class, violence, and sex in America, 'The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek' opens next Friday, March 3, 2017 at the Schwartz Center. Written by MacArthur winner Naomi Wallace, this haunting Depression-era drama tells the story of two teenagers facing off against crushing poverty, a bleak future and the cold, lip-smacking steel of a Northfolk Southern steam locomotive. Performances run thru March 11th. Get your Tix today at schwartztickets.com. #CUatTheSchwartz
