Karen Robu's original play “Suffering Church” will be staged Monday, April 11, at 7 p.m. in Krehbiel Auditorium in Luyken Fine Arts Center.

Most people who recognize Robu’s name do so because she has been a fixture in Wichita theater for almost 30 years.

But Robu is also a full-time associate minister for Plymouth Congregational Church in Wichita and part-time assistant professor of communication arts and director of theater at Bethel College, who just completed a Doctor of Ministry degree at Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa, Okla.
