Faculty Lecture Series: Shakespeare, Politics & the Revival of Empathy

Join us for our Faculty Lecture Series
SHAKESPEARE, POLITICS AND THE REVIVAL OF EMPATHY presented by Dr. Peter Byrne
 
Thursday, Feb 2, 6-7pm
Kent State Trumbull Theatre
4314 Mahoning Ave. NW, Warren, OH 44483
 
For the tenth year, Dr. Peter Byrne, Kent State University at Trumbull Associate Professor of English, will write the script for Shakespeare Theatre Company’s annual “Will on the Hill” benefit in Washington D.C. 
 
Each year, volunteers from the government (mostly members of Congress, both the House and the Senate) as well as from local and national media, lobbyists and corporate sponsors perform an original one-performance play based on Shakespeare and infused with comedic references to contemporary politics. This year’s performance raised over $500,000 for artistic, education and community outreach programs to bring Shakespeare to in-need schools in the area.
 
The event is FREE.
