CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Theatre UNI will present 'The Good Wife,' a poetry performance by Georgia Scott, at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Sept. 23, at the Strayer-Wood Theatre on the University of Northern Iowa campus. The presentation is sponsored in part by the Martha Ellen Tye Guest Artist Fund. It is free and open to the public.

Focused around the theme of Communist-ruled Poland after World War II, 'The Good Wife' is a collection of candid, yet emotional, poems of everyday life from the women's point-of-view, according to Jascenna Haislet-Carlson, marketing director for Theatre UNI.

Scott, originally from Boston, is an associate professor of English at the University of Gdansk, in Poland. She has worked as a reporter and a human rights activist. Her poetry has been translated into Danish, Polish and Czech.

A reception and book signing will follow Scott's performance. For more information, call the Strayer-Wood Theatre box office at (319) 273-6381.
