The Northfield Arts Guild Theater proudly presents  two one-act plays, Yiddish Cowboys and Cabin 12, in An Evening of One-Act Plays.  An exciting world premiere, Larry Greenstein’s Yiddish Cowboys takes place in Poland in 1939, where townspeople of Villeker are excited to have a real Hollywood western filmed in their village. Cabin 12, written by John Bishop, is a powerful story of a father and son who must find a way to communicate in their time of grief and transform their pain into love.

         Presenter: David Norman, Agricultural Economist

In order to maximize time for discussion David will distribute a small handout indicating the dimensions of the current problem, the trends in terms of hunger, and some of the challenges to solving the hunger problem.    David will focus mainly on low-income countries where he spent most of my career. 

        David spent 20 years working long-term in Nigeria and Botswana and after joining Kansas State University, would teach one semester/year teaching and supervising graduate students, and then most of the rest of the year doing many short-term assignments with international agencies (e.g., World Bank, United Nations Agencies, Ford and Rockefeller Foundations, and country donor agencies) in about 80 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the South Pacific.

Cost: $5
