Event Details

Meet Terence: Brought to Rome from Africa as a slave in ~146BC, Terence was later freed, and authored multiple popular adaptations of Greek plays. His works were a key text for students learning Latin during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and served as an inspiration for many playwrights to come, including Shakespeare. He is considered one of the first great poets of the African diaspora. Join us as we experience Terence's works as they were originally meant -- read aloud! We will assign roles and begin our reading at 3:15 pm, no acting experience is required. Print and/or download the script at:
