Subject: 	Greenblatt on Cardenio

Stephen Greenblatt will give a talk titled "Toward a Theory of Cultural 
Mobility: The Strange Case of Cardenio"  at Marlboro College (Marlboro, 
Vermont) this Friday evening September 28th at 8PM in Whittemore 
Theatre.  The event is free and open to the public.

Prof. Greenblatt has co-authored a script with playwright Charles Mee 
based upon fragments of the lost play Cardenio that will be produced and 
performed by the American Repertory Theatre in May 2008. A.R.T. Promotes 
that event in these words:

 >Shakespeare scholar Stephen Greenblatt and playwright Charles Mee have 
joined
 >forces to produce a midsummer comedy of love based on Cardenio, a play by
 >Shakespeare that was lost soon after its first performance. Fragments 
survive,
 >which Greenblatt and Mee have woven into a contemporary reconstruction 
of the
 >story, now set at a wedding party on the terrace of a villa in the Umbrian
 >hills.
 >
 >Shakespeare1s fingerprints are all over this sparkling new version, 
from the
 >crisscrossing of suspicious lovers to a cunning Iago-like meddler, from
 >soliloquies (reimagined as wedding toasts) to overheard conversations, 
from
 >the dream of passion to the pleasures of music and dance.

If you are within reach of southern Vermont, please come.
