"I don't understand ... how did my child turn out this way?"

"A Human Interest Story (Or the Gory Details and All)" offers an explosive look at the media's portrayal of violence in a modern era. Nature documentaries, political tragedies, house pets with special talents—it's all available by simply flipping through channels on a TV screen. But when does America's obsession with voyeurism go too far?

Issy Leustig directs a cast of CU Theatre & Dance's talented student performers. In Acting Studio performances, audiences experience a variety of expiremental works in an intimate black box theatre.
