‘TWO DOLLAR BILL’
Jan. 15-30, 2016
Simmons Pioneer Memorial Theatre
Pioneer Theatre Company presents “Two Dollar Bill,” Jan. 15-30, 2016.
“Two Dollar Bill” is a new a play written the writer who created the popular television series “Army Wives” and “Lie To Me.”
At an elite university, a distinguished professor of history has just been nominated for a prestigious award, but the attention over that nomination has cast a confusing light on his academic credentials. This has career-changing consequences for the professor, the dean of faculty, his graduate assistant and a student he teaches. A riveting examination of personal and professional ethics, as well as of the proper mission of higher education in America, “Two Dollar Bill” has the ripped-from-the-headlines timeliness that is sure to inspire water cooler conversations and dinner table debates among audiences who see it.
