By Ben Slote, Prof. of English
“Calling Ida” is a one-act comedy about desperation and self-discovery. That’s right: it’s about the senior project. Can Jeannie Pointer, our 2015 heroine, make it to graduation with her wits and integrity in tact? Not without help from Allegheny’s most illustrious alumna, Ida Tarbell — or at least Jeannie’s own inner Ida.
