Important note: The reading scheduled for April 7 has been canceled. The April 21 reading is still scheduled as planned.

Join University Theatre for the first reading of NC State student Kiran Soma's 2023 Creative Artist Award-winning one-act play. What We Grew Up With is set in the United States post 9/11 and follows an immigrant family and their experiences navigating racism, xenophobia and estrangement. A sentimental drama, the play highlights issues that touch aspects of all of our lives and displays the importance of making real progress on inclusion and belonging.

Committed to developing the next generation of NC State playwrights, The WRIGHT Way series features readings, workshops and masterclasses to support winners of the Creative Artist Award through the development of their award-winning plays — the right way.
