9 Before IX Rescheduled At Concord University

ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University and the Title IX office are proud to present 9 Before IX, a one woman play that tells the story of nine women working before Title IX.  The play was originally scheduled for Feb. 6, but was postponed due to inclement weather. It has been rescheduled for Thursday, March 19 in the H.C. Paul Theatre located in the Fine Arts Center at 7 p.m.

Admission is free, but donations of cash and food for the CU Food Pantry will be accepted. For more information, contact Jill Nolan in the Title IX Office at jnolan@concord.edu or Karen Vuranch in the Theatre Department at 304-384-5259.

9 Before IX features nine different stories about nine different women who faced discrimination in the workplace before the federal civil rights law known as “Title IX” was established. Written by Dr. Fran Kirk, the play features the heartfelt and inspiring stories of these women.

Kirk, who has also appeared in plays such as Rocket Boys The MusicalCabaretand Our Townwill present 9 Before IX. Originally performing the play at Fairmont State University two years ago, Kirk brings both elegance and passion to her performance. This play will feature a combination of monologue acting and lecture, making it feel like a Shakespearean soliloquy.

This program is a cooperative project between the Concord University Theatre Department and the campus Title IX office.  Federal funding was received from the United States Department of Justice through the West Virginia Intercollegiate Council Against Sexual Violence Consortium.
