THE

FORUM

Peer into the Playbill

BOYS BEHAVING BADLY

Chalmers Lounge, Avon Theatre
Wednesday, August 21
10:45 am

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, women’s voices are stronger than ever. Yet characters like John Proctor, Henry VIII and Falstaff remind us how patriarchal societies contribute to a male sense of privilege and entitlement. Our panel examines some of the sources and costs of this behaviour.

Panellists:
Shereen El Feki, journalist and author
Irene Poole, this season's Katherine in Henry VIII
Jacqueline Wernimont, Distinguished Chair of Digital Humanities and Social Engagement and Associate Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Dartmouth College

Moderator:
Antoni Cimolino, Artistic Director

Get your books signed! Shereen El Feki and Jacqueline Wernimont will sign copies of their works following the event. We’ll have copies available for purchase, or you are welcome to bring your own.

Support for the Forum is generously provided by Kelly & Michael Meighen and The T.R. Meighen Family Foundation.
