Conceived by Dr. Christine Woodworth, former UNCG Theatre faculty member, “Frame/Works” is a program designed to draw connections between scholarly examination and artistic practice.
The “Frame/Works” selection for the fall is UNCG Theatre’s production of “As You Like It,” and will take place on Thursday, Sept. 28. The presenting researchers are Dr. Jennifer Feather, Dr. Lauren Shook and Dr. Jennifer Park, from the English department, and their presentations are, respectively: “Restless Shakespeare: The Forest of Arden After Hurricane Harvey,” “Dining in Deserts: Understanding Food Scarcity in the Forest of Arden” and “Cosmetics of Color: Celia as Aliena in As You Like it.”
School of Theatre Director Dr. John Poole will moderate the discussion and Professor and Production Director John Gulley and selected performers and designers will also participate in the post-show Q&A discussion.
At 5 p.m., light refreshments will be served in the Slane Lobby of UNCG Auditorium, and the pre-show presentation of research will begin at 5:15 p.m. The presentation will be followed by a dinner break, and the 7:30 p.m. production of “As You Like” it at Taylor Theatre. The post-show responses and Q&A will begin at 9:40 p.m.
All “Frame/Works” participants may purchase tickets at a discounted rate of $12; UNCG student tickets are all $9.
