Three Free Events Slated as Henry Plays Begin Revolving Repertory

As Henry IV Parts 1 and 2 begin a final two week revolving repertory
where theatergoers can see both plays back to back, Shakespeare Theatre
has slated programs at the theater designed to give audiences a deeper
understanding of the history and issues raised in the plays. . . . on
Monday May 17, the day after the repertory ends, there will be a debate
on the topic "Resolved: That the Invasion of France Was Justified" which
will focus in part on parallels, if any, between the fifteenth century
invasion dealt with by Shakespeare and the contemporary invasion of
Iraq. United States Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer will
act as presiding judge while participants in the debate include a former
director of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, a columnist from
the New York Times, the editor-in-chief  of Forbes FYI, a senior adviser
to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the CEO of the
Aspen Institute, Chris Matthews, host of the "Hardball" television show,
Theodore B. Olson, former Solicitor General of the United States,
former Ambassador to the United Nations Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, syndicated
columnist Arianna Huffington. For information or reservations, call
