their facial features plus experience
social contact with each other. Dr.
Sampson says that the children are ad

The Drama Department will be presenting a play written by Miguel Pinero en
titled Short Eyes from Nov. 10-15. The play, (which stars an all male cast) is a
very energetic story which deals with the social system in a prison and how the
immates of the prison react to the many different situations they are faced with.
This will be the first time a play of this nature will be staged at the University.
Mr. Elliot Moffitt, Director of the play, says the language and personality of
Short Eyes are harsh and realistic. Subjects such as homosexuality, pride, honor
and death will be expressed in graphic detail. Still, Short Eyes has a certain
amount of humor which adds a lighthearted flavor to the play.
While discussing the plot of Short Eyes, Mr. Moffitt seemed very excited about
it saying, “I’ve acted in many theater and movie productions, but there’s
something special about this one.” Mr. Moffitt has had roles in the popular
movie, Abby and a play by Tennesse Williams entitled The Battle of Angels.
He is a graduate of North Carolina A&T and received a master’s degree in!
theater from New York University.
Admission for FSU students is free. Group rates are offered for other Fayet
teville Schools. For more information contact Mr. Moffitt at 486-1443.
This play depicts the lifestyle behind bars as it REALLY IS. It would be a crime
to miss it.
