Early this month, Professor Charles Duff of the London Undergraduate Program, film critic Quentin Falk and other notable figures from the theatre world came together to give a conference celebrating life and work of director Peter Glenville, on the hundredth anniversary of his birth. Find out more at the Notre Dame International website.
Excitement is building ahead of tomorrow’s second annual Stanley Wells Lecture, when we will welcome Sir Nicholas Hytner, the artistic director of the National Theatre, giving a lecture entitled “Stand and Unfold Yourself!” How to Do Shakespeare.
This article from Paul Edmondson for Blogging Shakespeare sums it up well – the anticipation is palpable.
The lecture takes place at 6 pm GMT (1 pm ET) tomorrow (Tuesday 5th March).
The event will be live-streamed at: http://shakespeare.nd.edu/events/stanley-wells-lecture/
Created in partnership with Westminster Libraries, London in Fact and Fiction is a new micro-book group.
Starting this evening, the mixed group of Notre Dame students and local Londoners will read four short examples of London writing, and meet every other week to discuss them.
The goal is to spark conversation, share some enjoyable London writing, and bring together Londoners and members of the Notre Dame community in London, who might not otherwise meet.
