Paul's Case by UrbanArias now at Artisphere

Willa Cather's short story "Paul's Case" begins:
It was Paul's afternoon to appear before the faculty of the Pittsburg High School to account for his various misdemeanors. He had been suspended a week ago, and his father had called at the principal's office and confessed his perplexity about his son. Paul entered the faculty room, suave and smiling. His clothes were a trifle outgrown, and the tan velvet on the collar of his open overcoat was frayed and worn; but, for all that, there was something of the dandy about him, and he wore an opal pin in his neatly knotted black four-in-hand, and a red carnation in his buttonhole.
Find out what happens to Paul by attending UrbanArias's songful production of "Paul's Case," happening this weekend and next weekend at Artisphere

To help your imagination, here's some more information: Paul runs away from Pittsburgh to New York City.  As you can imagine, if Paul ran away today, he would have ran to Rosslyn.
