Ralph Alan Cohen on Blackfriars: “The Most Convenient Place”  

July 9, 2012    7pm
Folger Elizabethan Theatre

Before it became synonymous with a theatre, The Blackfriars was a London precinct literally at the nexus of the City, the Church, and the Court. Ralph Alan Cohen, Director of Mission and Co-Founder of the American Shakespeare Center where he oversaw their building of a replica of the Blackfriars Playhouse, looks at how the place and the playhouse mirrored one another and made the Blackfriars the place to be and the place be seen.

Lectures

David Schalkwyk and actors from Taffety Punk: Readings from The Roaring Girl  

July 30, 2012    7pm
Folger Elizabethan Theatre

Actors from Washington’s Taffety Punk Theatre Company present a staged dramatic reading of excerpts of The Roaring Girl, a bold, brilliant play by Thomas Middleton and Thomas Dekker. The play was first produced in 1611 and was restaged famously in the 1980s by the Royal Shakespeare Company. David Schalkwyk, Folger’s director of research, talks about why this “city comedy” reveals so much about Jacobean London.
