Adas Share Stories About Their Road to Smith

Ada Monologues, April 13 and 19, 7 p.m., Graham Hall, Hillyer

Ask an Ada Comstock Scholar about her time before Smith and you’re bound to get some amazing answers.

Telephone psychic. Barista. Personal assistant to a crazy millionaire. Chef. Fishmonger. Mother. Student.

Those are just a fraction of the perspectives Adas bring with them to Smith, and a few of the experiences presenters will talk about during the second annual Ada Monologues, on Saturday, April 13, and Friday, April 19, in which students of nontraditional age write and tell about their roads to Smith.

This year’s Ada Monologues will include some back-by-request pieces from last year’s event, as well as new additions to the program. Both performances will begin at 7 p.m. in Graham Hall, Hillyer.

Some of their stories are intense and difficult, others humorous and triumphant. Whatever their stories, every Ada arrives at Smith wiser for her experience.

Tickets to the Ada Monologues—$2 for Smith students (with ID), $5 general admission—are available for purchase at the Campus Center on Friday, April 12, and Thursday, April 18, and at the door before both shows (cash only). Ticket proceeds will benefit the Ada Comstock Scholars Program.
