The Act of Gender in Shakespearean Acting

Wednesday, September 21, 2016
6:30pm – 7:45pm

Stamford Campus
General Re Auditorium

If gender itself is a work-in-progress, what is revealed when an actress plays a "man" or "woman" (or both) in Shakespearean drama?

As part of the celebrations surrounding the visit of Shakespeare's First Folio to UConn, students and faculty at Stamford will explore the issue of gender-as-performance in an event organized by Prof. Pamela Brown, with scenes from Macbeth and Twelfth Night directed by Nancy Selleck and starring Isabella Ferrante and Linh Tran.
