This Benefit is produced in honor of Professor Leah Ryan of the Arts & Communications Department who died of leukemia in July 2008. As well as being an inspiring teacher to her students, she was also a talented playwright whose plays are produced around the country. The proceeds from this production will support a scholarship in Professor Ryan's name for a student developing in writing fundamentals at LIM College. For more about Leah Ryan please visit her website HERE.
