NPRS: Acting School by Kathleen Tolan
The Smith Department of Theatre's New Play Reading Series presents Acting School by Kathleen Tolan on Thursday, March 11 at 7:30. “Why act? The world is falling apart.” Based on Olympia Dukakis’ acting classes at NYU in the 60s, Acting School follows Olympia and her six students in the East Village against the backdrop of the Black Power Movement and the Vietnam War. Olympia’s intense training methods push the students to face the fears of being human and confront masked truths; working through scenes from powerful plays, including Arthur Miller’s View from the Bridge, LeRoi Jones/Amiri Baraka’s Dutchman, Aeschylus’ Agamemnon, and more. Written by Kathleen Tolan of Memory House (Playwrights Horizons), Kate's Diary (Playwrights Horizons and the Public Theatre), A Girl's Life (Trinity Rep), The Wax (Playwrights Horizons), and more.
