Contemporary Classics Conversations – Virtual

January 23, 7:30 pm

Hill-Stead joins with Capital Classics Theatre Company in presenting Contemporary Classics Conversations

Enjoy an insightful and lively evening of conversation inspired by Athol Fugard’s one-act play, Victory.

Set in New South Africa, following the first free election in 1994, Victory features two adolescents discovered while robbing a home. Their discovery leads to a night of dialogue, revealing the hardships of living in apartheid-created poverty Capital Classics Theatre Company artists will perform scene readings examining the despair of many young Black citizens in South Africa who see little prospect of a constructive future. Between excerpts, the audience will discuss the play’s themes and their relevance and resemblance to our world today.
