"Dodging Bullets" is the compelling story that unmasks the face of cruelty with surprising humor and visceral truth as Barker brings 10 characters to life in a solo performance.

Tickets are available from the Performing Arts Series box office in Administration Building100 from noon to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday; online; or by calling the box office at 660-543-8888. Student tickets are half price.
