dayroomFordham’s theatre program turned to homegrown talent for the opening of its 2009-2010 season, as theater head Matthew Maguire directed Day Room, a dark comedy written by Don DeLillo, FCRH ’58. Set in a hospital’s psychiatric ward, the play features patients whose fear of death leads them to devise a play to defeat their anxiety. The season continues on Thursday, Nov. 19 with a production of Mrs. Packard by Emily Mann.
