Majestic palm trees. Bountiful sunshine. Wide walkways winding between adobe and tiled buildings. A perfect place for study, reflection, and discussion. Using techniques pioneered by Sinatra Visiting Artist Anna Deavere Smith, and coordinated with her residency at SCU in February 2017, this new documentary play invites the community to use their own words to take an inward view at SCU and address what happens when there's trouble in paradise.
