"Death Without the Advantages"

8:00 pm Webster Hall, Studio 3 (G19)

Join us for a reality-bending evening of one-act plays acted and directed by students in the "Acting & Directing Studio" class. Six very short plays, from a variety of genres and eras, by James McLindon, Samuel Beckett, David Ives, Tennessee Williams, David Henry Hwang and William Butler Yeats will be performed by the same ensemble of actors. Each play takes a different look at how we relate to fate-- some funny, some tragic and some mysterious.

Explore Your Identity Wheel for Enhancing Compassion & Reducing Conflict at Work

When tensions arise at work, we humans are less inclined to engage. “We’re tired.” “We’ve tried.” “It’s better to keep our cares to ourselves and deal with the situation.” Has this ever been you? Come explore using "Social Identity Wheels" to access the multitudes of who you are, who others are, and how to develop bridge-building skills that make room for your differences -- engaging with one another with more kindness and curiosity for development. Open to students, staff and faculty, via Zoom.
