"A Doll's House," Wig and Buckle play, 8 p.m., Leedy Theater, Mund College Center
Wig & Buckle presents its rendition of "A Doll's House," an 1879 play by by Henrik Ibsen. The play is significant for its critical attitude toward 19th century marriage norms. It aroused great controversy at the time, as it concludes with the protagonist, Nora, leaving her husband and children because she wants to discover herself. Ibsen was inspired by the belief that "a woman cannot be herself in modern society," since it is "an exclusively male society, with laws made by men and with prosecutors and judges who assess feminine conduct from a masculine standpoint."

History
Inquiry began in 2011 (then-named a "Celebration of Student Learning") to showcase the scholarly, scientific, and creative accomplishments of Lebanon Valley College students. The three-day celebration began April 26, and culminated on April 28 with the Spring Awards Banquet.

The Celebration included poster presentations, art displays, poetry readings, oral research presentations, and musical recitals. Every academic department on campus nominated students to share their accomplishments during that week.
