Between the Lines
Todd Bauer has taught British and American drama at the Newberry Library for the past ten years. Last year he directed a program entitled “Pinter & Perspective” in which he explored the power dynamics in Pinter's The Birthday Party, by casting both disabled and non-disabled actors. Currently he is the visiting artist with Visible Theatre in New York, for which an NEA Challenge America Grant was awarded. He is also a playwright, and received a residency at the Ragdale foundation for 2008. A staged reading of his play Downsizing Camus recently took place at the Biograph Theater.
Between the Lines features a guest expert sharing his or her insight on the play and leading a pre-show discussion - a great way to gain a deeper understanding of the play and an entertaining event! The conversation begins one hour before show-time, and concludes with a post-show talkback.
Recorded Saturday, October 24, 2009 at The Greenhouse Theater.
