Events Calendar

Gettysburg: An American Noh

 Conceived as a medieval Japanese noh play, Gettysburg will be premiered at the Stephen Foster Memorial's Charity Randall Theatre on Sept. 14 at 7:30 PM.  It should be an interesting cultural fusion, a play that imagines the meeting between the ghost of Confederate general Lewis Armistead and a 21st-century descendant of his friend, Union general Winfield Scott Hancock, whose troops killed Armistead at the Battle of Gettysburg. 

Prior to the play, there will be several pre-performance lectures at local libraries, which are free and open to the public.  Times and locations can be found at the bottom of this email.  We will also be hosting a small symposium (also free and open to the public) bringing together scholars, writers, and practitioners to discuss the play as noh, as drama, and as performance of memory.  The symposium takes place Friday, September 13, in the Gettysburg Room of Soldiers and Sailors Memorial, and on the morning of September 14th in the Croghan Schenley Room in the Cathedral of Learning.  You are cordially invited to join us for any or all of these events.
