Shenandoah Native Playwright to Perform “We Enheduanna” in Pottsville This Weekend

On Saturday November 19th at 7:00 PM at the Majestic Theater in Pottsville, Dane Rooney will perform a new full-length play which he wrote entitled “We Enheduanna.” 

The play deals with the history of the world’s first author Enheduanna and her life as a Princess and High Priestess in Ancient Mesopotamia. 

According to Mr. Rooney this play came to fruition over the span of several years bringing this play from the page to the stage was his personal labor of love.
