'Yellow Dress' focuses on domestic violence

Kansas University will present the play "The Yellow Dress" at 7 p.m. Friday at Alderson Auditorium in the Kansas Union.

"The Yellow Dress" is a one-woman play based on stories of young women who were victims of dating violence.

The Emily Taylor Women's Resource Center and Women's Transitional Care Services, with the support of KU Student Senate, Men Can Stop Rape, Rape Victim-Survivor Service and the KU theater department, are bringing the program to KU students and the Lawrence community in an effort to prevent dating and domestic violence.

The play will be performed by Sara Armstrong, award-winning KU actress, and directed by Joy Richmond, who recently directed "The Vagina Monologues."
