On This Day in IUPUI History: April 19, 1974

April 19, 1974. 

On this day, the IUPUI Reader's Theatre performed a reading of "Love of Seven Dolls," a 1954 story by the American writer Paul Gallico (1897-1976). The Reader's Theatre was part of the bustling IUPUI theater establishment under the director of Professors Dorothy L. Webb and J. Edgar Webb, who taught theater and communication in the School of Liberal Arts. In addition to the University Theatre and Reader's Theatre, Dorothy Webb directed an influential children's theater program that commissioned plays and awarded prizes to meritorious works.
