BANGOR — The Cultural Events Committee of the University of Maine at Augusta will present two free performances of “An Authentic Mess: Dispatches from the Beauty Battlefield” at noon on Thursday, Feb. 20 in 124 Eastport Hall on the UMA Bangor Campus, University Drive. This event is free and open to the public.

Written by and starring Orlando-based actress Lily E. Garnett, “An Authentic Mess: Dispatches from the Beauty Battlefield” is a 60-minute comic drama that combines autobiography with storytelling to explore self-image, social conditioning, beauty standards, and how society values people, particularly women.

Note: The production does include some mature themes and is not suitable for very young children.
