Professor Hinton's Play Receives Rave Reviews

Professor Hinton play

January 7, 2014 - Professor Kenneth Hinton, assistant professor of theatre in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts, directed the stage play "Anatomy of a Woman Abused" at the Raleigh Little Theatre last fall. The play, which starred Schelle Holloway Purcell and Rolfini Whidbee in the lead roles, discussed the very serious issue of domestic violence.

Based on a novel by playwright Jaisun McMillian, the play received rave reviews from the Raleigh community:

  • "Not only well conceived, well written and well directed, but the acting and supporting cast was stellar!" - Michael L. Buie
  • "Overall, this production proved to be a must see. Great job to the director Mr. Kenneth Hinton Sr. and the playwright and producer Ms. Jaisun McMillian." – James A. House
  • "Schelle Holloway Purcell as always you did a FANTASTIC job, it was an outstanding performance." - Tanya Adams Barrett

Professor Hinton has recently completed writing the full length play, "You Ain’t My Daddy." The play is currently scheduled to open on May 1st and 2nd at the Burning Coal Theatre in Raleigh, NC and will feature performances by the Shaw Players.
