The Sixth Act is pleased to host an academic workshop focusing on the life and legacy of Tennessee Williams. After exploring the biography of the playwright and some broad concepts he consistently addresses in his work, we will focus on A Streetcar Named Desire, which MCC’s theatre program will produce during the Spring 2014 semester. We aim to cultivate both student and faculty interest in this American legend and to generate support for MCC’s forthcoming production of this play.
The event will take place on Thursday, October 17, from 4-5:30 PM, in the Black Box Theater. Curriculum packets will be available by contacting Jeffery Jones at <mailto:email@example.com>, and special books/materials will be placed on reserve at MCC’s Leroy V. Good Library for anyone interested. As always, refreshments will be provided at the event. I hope to see you there!
Formed in 2004, The Sixth Act provides co-curricular support for the study of drama across disciplines at MCC. To this end, The Sixth Act (1) develops co-curricular events and materials for MCC faculty and students, especially those who might teach or study plays or playwriting, and (2) provides enrichment opportunities to encourage all MCC faculty, students, and staff to see and talk about plays produced at MCC and in the Rochester area. The Sixth Act seeks as its leaders faculty, staff, and students drawn from a variety of academic disciplines and departments.
The Sixth Act is supported by MCC’s Creative Arts Committee and Liberal Arts Program. Please contact Maria Brandt at: <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> for more information or to get involved.
