Hear Me Roar: First Among Men

adapted from the Lafayette College Archives Oral History Project

  • Performances: March 3 through 5, 2011 at 8:00 p.m.
  • A newly revised version of We Were Pioneers, first performed in 2003, this multimedia readers’ theater production uses the actual words of men and women enrolled at Lafayette  when, in 1970, the first co-educational class in the history of the College began the strong and invincible movement that broke gender barriers and continues to transform the Lafayette experience.  Filmed interviews with members of the Class of 2014,  accounts of the Class of 1974 performed live, popular music of the early 1970s, and dozens of memorable images from College Hill and the world beyond from 1970-74 all promise to evoke memories and spark discussion about the way we were forty years ago, celebrate our accomplishments, and look forward to a future full of promise for women and men alike.
