ACTRESS, PLAYWRIGHT KAREN ETEROVICH TO PERFORM HER WORK AT SRU OCT. 27

          SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Karen Eterovich, actress and author of “Love Arm’d: Aphra Behn and Her Pen,” will perform her play at 8 p.m. Oct. 27, in Slippery Rock University’s Sheehy Auditorium located in the Maltby Center.

          The free performance is open to the public.

          This year is the 10th anniversary of Eterovich’s play, heralded by an array of events highlighting the unique work and literary contributions of Aphra Behn, a woman whose plays are known for their quick wit and societal parodies. Behn is also considered by some as the first woman to make a living from her writing as part of a career peppered by stints in debtor’s prison and work as a spy in service to Charles II.

          Eterovich has performed “Love Arm’d” on stages throughout the U.S. States and Europe, including engagements at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The play has also become a popular educational vehicle for college-level theater students, keeping Eterovich in demand as both a lecturer and performer. This season she has performed at Bergen Community College, Denver University and Oakland University, in addition to heading a “Women in Theatre” workshop and directing a performance of “She Stoops to Conquer.”

          Eterovich created “Love Arm’d” after performing in a play by Behn and finding herself fascinated by the writer.
