As Bates marks Schaeffer Theatre's 50th, March plays look at French culture, U.S. sexual politics

March is a month for theater classics at Bates College. Elizabeth Castellano, a Bates junior from New Suffolk, N.Y., directs the college’s production of David Mamet’s Oleanna, a highly charged story of sexual politics in the halls of academe. Meanwhile, the theater department honors French culture and marks the 50th anniversary of its mainstage venue, Schaeffer Theatre, with a production of Molière’s 1672 satire The Learned Ladies.
