HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 6, 2020 – The High Point University Department of Theatre and Dance will perform “Borrowed Babies,” inspired by the true story of young women using practice babies to learn about child-rearing.

Written by playwright Jennifer Blackmer, “Borrowed Babies” includes themes of feminism, women in the workforce and the balance of work and motherhood.
“The production of ‘Borrowed Babies’ explores the ever-evolving role of women and mothers in American society over the last 60 years,” says Doug Brown, the show’s director and associate professor of the Department of Theatre & Dance. “We are excited to bring this story to life and inspire dialogue around the role of women at work and at home.”
