EVENT TYPE: Speaker Luncheon
The whole country is awake and politically active, making this the most exciting time to be producing plays, according to Molly Smith, with the arts having always been on the front line of the fight against fear. She will share with us how Arena Stage welcomes dialogue and fierce conversations, in the belief that we become a stronger nation when all voices are heard. Although we may go to the theater to be entertained and even to escape, the theater also makes sense of the world, especially in times of unrest and chaos, by illuminating the past, validating the present, and leading us screaming into the future. Smith is artistic director of Arena Stage.
