Trinity is partnering with the Folger Shakespeare Library to host a special dialogue on campus on Wednesday, October 5, 6:30 pm, in O’Connor Auditorium in Main Hall. Trinity students, faculty, staff and alumnae are invited to participate in this discussion, which is also open to the public.
“CrossTalk: D.C. Reflects on Identity and Difference” is a community engagement initiative that brings people together to think about race and religion thoughtfully and deeply, through the lens of literature and history. The interactive program will feature roundtable discussions and Folger actors performing excerpts from “The Merchant of Venice” and “District Merchants,” new play commissioned by the Folger that is a retelling of “The Merchant of Venice” set in post-Civil War D.C. CrossTalk is part of “The Wonder of Will,” a Folger celebration of 400 years of Shakespeare through exhibits, performances and special events. Trinity is a co-sponsor of Crosstalk, which is overseen by Dr. Peggy O’Brien ’69, Director of Education at the Folger.
