displaymedia-1Our American Hamlet
A World Premiere by Jake Broder
Directed by Steven Maler

The year was 1866, less than a year after President Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth. His brother Edwin Booth, one of the greatest Shakespearean actors of the nineteenth century, decided to perform Hamlet on Broadway, a role he had performed in the past to great acclaim. A huge crowd turned up for the performance — but it wasn’t clear whether they were there to see the actor perform, or to exact their revenge.  Jacob Fishel, an actor with a wide-ranging career on television and on and off Broadway, takes on the role of Booth.  Presented by Commonwealth Shakespeare Company

Selected performances (TBA) free for students.

displaymedia-7Mustang (2015)

Directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven, 2015

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Mustang takes place in a village in northern Turkey where the innocent flirtations of five young sisters set off a series of dire consequences. The girls are pulled from school, and the family home is turned into a sort of prison where the sisters are trained to become dutiful and submissive wives. But as this deeply moving story unfolds, their passionate spirits cannot be confined, and one by one, they find ways to break free of their constraints.

Screen Shot 2017-01-24 at 12.37.30 PMAlthough the struggle for England’s throne was never simple, the kingdom lasted for over a millennium before the sovereignty passed outside a direct familial line. But when an inept ruler — indecisive, frivolous and vain — angered the established nobility, one man interceded in the transition of power and sparked a civil war that would last 86 years.

Shakespeare & Leadership features a staged reading of excerpts from the play, performed by leaders from the business community alongside professional actors. The reading is followed by a panel discussion in which the participants address leadership questions and themes raised in the text.

Exhibit on View: April 5–May 19

Sachiko Akiyama’s work brings together artistic influences of Brancusi, Egyptian funerary sculptures, medieval Christian woodcarvings, and contemporary sculptors with the artist’s personal experiences and Japanese heritage, notably Japanese fairy tales.  Her carvings convey a sense of centeredness and direct connections to nature that opens up the door to creation mythologies and other mystical possibilities. The figures’ relationships to flora, fauna, and the elements speak metaphorically to the ways we find meaning in our lives and meet the challenges of our surroundings.

displaymedia-4Beckett in Brief
Three short plays by Samuel Beckett
Directed by James Seymour
Featuring Will Lyman

Among Beckett’s most autobiographical works, Rough for Radio II, The Old Tune, and Krapp’s Last Tape explore universal questions of creativity, memory, aging, sex, friendship, and the proximity of death. These plays from his mid-career are traditionally viewed as individual statements, but the three provide a wealth of impressions when placed in conversation with one another, giving us a better understanding of the legendary playwright’s intellect, passion, and temperament. This production features Will Lyman (left), familiar to Boston audiences for his many roles at CSC and other theaters, and his decades of narrating Frontline on PBS.
