Sixteen years ago, Dr. Keith Nisbett and his wife, Kim, didn’t set out to create an entrenched artistic home for amateur actors across south-central Missouri. As homeschool parents, they simply wanted to provide eldest daughter Amy, then a teenager, with the opportunity to perform on stage.That first show — From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, an adaptation of a popular children’s book — quickly became a full-fledged production. And as the nonprofit theater has laid down roots in Rolla, it’s evolved from a Nisbett family affair into a full-fledged community theater, with a healthy dose of participation by Missouri S&T students, staff, other faculty members and the community.

STEM Monologues depicts hurdles for women in science, tech, engineering and math — in their own words

The challenges faced by women in the male-dominated fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics are well-documented, and pervasive. While more than 56 percent of college students on U.S. campuses are female, the percentages of women earning degrees in the fields collectively known as STEM hover at less than half that rate. In the workplace, women represent nearly half of the U.S. workforce but account for just 28.4 percent of American scientists and engineers, according to the National Science Foundation.

Beyond those statistics, though, are countless personal stories: withering accounts of casual discrimination; demeaning remarks that continue to sting years later; diminished expectations by classmates, professors, coworkers and supervisors; and in the most severe cases, sexual harassment and sexual assault. Those personal stories are at the heart of “The STEM Monologues,” a new play being performed by the Miner League Theatre Players at Missouri University of Science and Technology over the next two weeks.
