Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Kogod Theatre

Come see the Maryland Shakespeare Player’s production of Twelfth Night! The Bard’s classic comedy grabs some giggle water and showcases some goofs and lollygags in the Roaring Twenties. The 1920’s in America were times of great precarity. Stuck between the First World War and the Great Depression, Americans enjoyed a period of unchecked wealth, culture, and social change. Twelfth Night exemplifies this precarity — characters are constantly almost running into each other, plots are almost falling apart, all against a backdrop of wealth and high social status. Much like in the ’20s, the role of women in society is questioned and subverted throughout the play.

This groundbreaking transatlantic theater project is focused on the value of privacy. In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Washington, theaters across the US and Europe have commissioned playwrights to write five-minute plays exploring the central question, “What does privacy mean to you in the digital age?” The results will be presented in different formats by a network of theaters through June 2018, with the intention of creating an artistic and cultural dialogue centered around varying American and European understandings of privacy.

Experience staged readings of all 15 plays over two evenings, accompanied by discussions about the issues raised by the works with participation from some of the playwrights as well as on-campus and local partners from the public policy, cyber-security and intelligence communities.

Join UMD faculty members and three of the participating artists/playwrights in Do Good Dialogue: No Place to Hide: A Conversation about Privacy, or the Lack Thereof on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 . 7 PM
