Covering seven decades of upper middle class WASP family life in New England, the play's vignettes around a dining room table offer a mosaic of stories demonstrating that change is inevitable.

"Badger," directed by theater professor Amelia Barrett, runs March 24 to April 3 in the MAC's Playhouse Theatre. Five young women take newly available jobs at the Badger Ordnance Works during World War II. Facing dangerous work in a hostile work environment, the women bond through joy and heartbreak.
