Email originally sent to all students, faculty and staff. Email discusses the following up coming productions:

2/12: Aeschylus' The Persians (472BC) The oldest fully extant Greek tragedy explores the limits of hubris, and ultimately, empathy. Can we mourn for our 'enemy'?

2/26: Julius Caesar (1599) by William Shakespeare: Perhaps Shakespeare's most overtly political play. What are the limits of patriotism?

3/12: Moliere's Tartuffe (1664) France's greatest comic playwright in his masterpiece of false piety and pretense. Who deserves our trust?

3/26: An Enemy of the People (1882) by Henrik Ibsen. A landmark of the drama of Realism. How far should we go in pursuit of Truth and what are the limits of free speech? In a new version by Robert Falls.

4/16: Mr Burns, a Post-Electric Play (2012) by Anne Washburn. One of America's finest contemporary dramatists, Anne Washburn's darkly comic play asks us how we rebuild after a global crisis and celebrates the enduring nature of theatre itself. And the Simpsons. (performed with a live video feed)
