DUUversity is a UUCW affinity group of members and friends who support diversity in the Milwaukee area by attending local theater productions that feature different cultural and ethical themes. Following the play, all those who are interested gather at a local restaurant for stimulating conversation about the performance and its meaning for us as individuals and as members of the greater Milwaukee community.
This year the six plays for this season tackle the issues of race, women’s place in the work force, recognition of disabilities, effects of war on veterans, and a controversial decision made by a Union general.

The group is open to everyone who enjoys theatre and an interesting discussion. Look over the offerings for this year, decide which ones you would like to attend, buy your own tickets, and join us for as many or as few as you want. If you let Kristin Fewel know you are planning to attend, she will send an e-mail to those who contact her to facilitate carpooling and to make the appropriated number of restaurant reservations
