Description: 

UCSC Professor Danny Scheie will lead an exploration of Mary-Kay Gamel's translation of the satirical political play, The Women's Congress by Aristophanes, and its relevance in today's political environment. The play will be used as a starting point ultimately leading to a live performance by UCDC student participants. This course is open to all UCDC students but it is the expectation that a cadre of 6-8 UC theater students will be recruited to form the backbone of this production. Professor Scheie is designing the production so that it can be adapted to the circumstances and resources available at UCDC in the Spring.
