Contemporary Context

Join us in the theater immediately following the 2pm performance of Troilus & Cressida on Sunday, July 30 for an engaging roundtable-style discussion on how we view love and war in Shakespeare’s tragedies. A panel of guest speakers and PSF artists will examine the societal undercurrents of the Bard’s Trojan War tale and its titular tragic lovers through the perspective of different generations connecting Shakespeare’s time to today. Free to all ticketholders.
