The Diversity Project was performed on April 20 and 21, 2017 at Penn State Abington. It arose from the course, "Theatre in Diverse Cultures", where the cultural diversity of the class inspired a search for theatrical ways for students to tell stories from their family histories, cultures and traditions.
