Oct. 10-13She Stoops to ConquerDirected by Lori HoneycuttLower Courtyard, Oct. 10-13, 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 11, 11 a.m., FREE
Called a "laughing comedy" by playwright Oliver Goldsmith, the play provides a raucous tale of mistaken identities, spirited hijinks, and a good dose of lighthearted romance. Charles Marlow, bashful around women of his own upper class—yet quite frisky amongst the serving girls—is on his way to the Hardcastle household to court Kate, the daughter of a county squire. Hilarity ensues when a bit of tomfoolery causes Marlow and his friend Hastings to mistake the home for an inn, the squire for the innkeeper, and Kate for a serving wench. Kate quickly realizes that a saucy servant is just the role needed to woo her beloved in this rollicking misadventure.
Nov. 15-16And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne FrankPerformance Hall, Nov. 15-16, 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., FREE
A multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews with Holocaust survivors Ed Silverberg and Eva Schloss with live actors recreating scenes from their lives during World War II. Ed was Anne Frank's first boyfriend, and she wrote about him in the beginning of her now-famous diary. Eva Schloss was the same age as Anne Frank and lived in the same apartment building in Amsterdam. Part oral history, part dramatic action, part direct address, part remembrance, the ensemble-driven And Then They Came for Me breaks new ground and has been acclaimed by audiences and critics in worldwide productions.
All music, dance, and drama performances are free and open to the public.
Events are subject to change. Contact Danielle Georgiou at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
