The Spring 2008 Cultural Program at Nassau Community College Presents "But for the Grace: Voices of Hunger" – A One-Person Performance by Bob Jaffe April 14

Garden City, NY - The Cultural Program at Nassau Community College is proud to present But for the Grace: Voices of Hunger, a one-person performance by actor Bob Jaffe. The event will take place on Monday, April 14 at 12:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. in the College Center Building.But for the Grace gives a voice to those who rely on food pantries to help them stave off hunger. The play dispels the negative stereotypes people often have of those who require this kind of assistance. Among the ten characters Jaffe plays are a seven-year old boy embarrassed by hunger, a widowed immigrant woman and a partially disabled truck driver trying to make ends meet. Jaffe, himself a food pantry volunteer, portrays these characters with dignity and compassion.

But for the Grace: Voices of Hunger is free, open to the public and accessible to the disabled. For more information about the presentation, please call 516.572.7153.
