Peer into the Playbill

ADAPTATION AND INSPIRATION

Chalmers Lounge, Avon Theatre
Wednesday, August 14
10:45 am
When historian Natalie Zemon Davis won the Holberg Prize for Trickster Travels, her groundbreaking work on “decentering history,” she didn’t imagine it would inspire a play. Join Dr. Zemon Davis, translator Linda Gaboriau and Antoni Cimolino, Artistic Director of the Festival and director of the play, in a discussion of the evolution of Birds of a Kind, conceived when playwright Wajdi Mouawad was asked to adapt the book for the stage.
