About the Performance:
Labyrinth: A Legacy of Language

From the heights of Shakespeare’s own time to the current day, every writer who has put pen to page has done so under the guiding light of the Bard’s influence. What better way to celebrate Shakespeare’s marvelous heritage than to explore the traces of his genius left to us in the writings of his artistic children. Labyrinth will take you on a journey through the works of other great playwrights through the centuries: Stoppard,  Williams, Ibsen, and Sheridan, until at last you reach the core and center – Shakespeare’s own works.

Labyrinth: A Legacy of Language will be a springboard for a  panel discussion, How Shakespeare Humanizes Our Culture: The Transforming Power of His Work. Panelists include George Drance, SJ, Artist in Residence at Fordham University, Louis Colaianni, author of How to Speak Shakespeare and Teacher/Coach, Rob Weinert-Kendt, Associate Editor at American Theatre, and Josh Cabat, Co-founder of the New York City Student Shakespeare Festival. Stephanie Ybarra, Artistic Associate, The Public Theater. Danielle Dwyer, CJ, Elements Artistic Director, will moderate.

Admission is FREE to both the performance and panel discussion. Reservations are recommended; call 508-240-2400.

Taking place at the beginning of Shakespeare’s 450th birth anniversary year, this timely panel will explore how the Bard’s work challenges the way we live as a society today. “Shakespeare has a tremendous understanding of human nature and concepts of revenge, forgiveness, accountability, making amends, and taking responsibility for our actions,” observes Danielle Dwyer, CJ, Elements Artistic Director. “His incredible grasp on the many different aspects of what it means to be human gives us a deeper, longer view on life. He understands the importance of living in harmony within ourselves and with each other.”
