Each Friday at 5 PM

An Exploration of Race and Shakespeare

“Then Must You Speak” will bring together scholars and artists for probing conversations about race and Shakespeare on the page and on the stage both in theory and in practice in order to grow our understanding of the many ways in which “classical” theatre and how we pursue it in America exposes and intersects with issues of social justice, systemic racism, equity, and the perpetuation of White supremacy culture while simultaneously offering a lens through which to imagine and embody positive change.

Presented LIVE via Zoom broadcast to our ASC Facebook page for free, every week this summer!
