Coe Parent Scholarship 7th Annual Silent Auction

“Nobody Said This Would Be Easy”
Join us Saturday for an entertaining performance of short plays and monologues, written by Coe playwrights and instructed by Kate Aspengren, Adjunct Assistant Professor of English. You’ll be guided around campus where you will enjoy pieces performed by members of the Coe community. The plays take place outdoors and will use campus architecture and art as their backdrops. While the plays are unrelated, you will find three elements in each: a hat, a book and the line, “Nobody said this would be easy.”
