Father, Father is a play in development written by Artistic Director, Dawn Marie Galtieri, and directed by Associate Artist, Abu Ansari.

Synopsis: The younger brother of Walter Spence, a star wrestler and sophomore at Marquette University, is looking into the circumstances around his brother's sudden death in 1978 at MU.

The journey reveals more than opposing incriminations. What he uncovers is a deeper, more complex landscape at Marquette that leads to his brother's death, one that involves race, sexuality, and power.
