Hole,” which opens Friday, Jan. 30, in the Stoner Theater at the Civic Center of Greater Des Moines.

Deena Conley, associate professor of theatre arts, will
direct the play, and Karla Kash, assistant professor of theatre and a member of
Actor’s Equity Association, will perform in the five-member cast.

everything they could want until an accident turns their world upside down and
leaves the couple drifting apart.

the Civic Center. More information about the play is available online.
