Last month the A.R.T. teamed up with the Humanities Center at Harvard to host a conversation between Pieter-Dirk Uys and Homi Bhabha, the Center’s Director. Their discussion was fascinating, and we hope to have an audio file online soon.
On Monday we’re joining forces with the Center again for an event focused on Cardenio. The panel will include the two playwrights, Charles Mee and Stephen Greenblatt, as well as Martin Puchner, a brilliant theatre scholar who is currently a visiting professor at Harvard (where he and I have been co-teaching a course on contemporary theatre this semester) and Elinor Fuchs, a distinguished critic, scholar, and playwright on the faculty of the Yale School of Drama. Homi Bhabha will be in the chair.
The discussion should be very lively, and will be an ideal introduction to this wonderful new play. I hope you can join us; it’s at 6pm on Monday May 5 at Zero Arrow Theatre, and is free and open to the public.
