“The Subject Was Roses” is a senior theatre production by Amanda Brasher, a senior theatre and Applied Critical Thought and Inquiry major from St. Peters, Mo. The “World of Theatre” Showcase consists of improvisations, scenes and one-act plays performed by students from the “World of Theatre” class at William Jewell.

Playwright Frank Gilroy’s “The Subject Was Roses” received the Pulitzer Prize, the Tony Award and the New York Drama Critics Award in 1965. A movie adaptation was released in 1968 and received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metroplex of more than two million.
